You guys, I figured something out while I was sitting in a busy Starbucks in downtown Boston on Monday morning, sipping my Venti coffee (yes, I’m entirely boring) siphoning free wifi and watching very busy Bostonians scurry to work while my husband rode off to Hopkinton to run 26.2 miles back to Boston.

The plastic stir sticks that Starbucks and other coffee places (like Panera) provide are sized to fit into the hole of your cup, keeping your java toasty warm until you get wherever it is you’re going to drink it.
