What she wasn't thinking

With Starbucks testing a new 31-ounce "trenta" size for cold drinks in the Tampa and Phoenix markets, you're probably asking "Why?" We certainly are.

We were instantly prompted to think of one of our favorite bits of life advice: just because something CAN be done, doesn't mean it SHOULD be done.

The 'trenta' lacks elegance, we think. And in matters of elegance, we think there are few better guides than Audrey Hepburn, with whom we would dearly have loved to have had breakfast at Tiffany's.

Roberto De Vido is a communications consultant, writer, cartoonist and jack of many trades. The former chief of Tucson Sentinel’s East Asia Bureau, he now lives in California (make of that what you will).

“I never drink coffee at lunch.  I find it keeps me awake for the afternoon.”
