Surreptitiously he glances at his humdinger of a watch and it says 2 o’clock and it says 2 new emails and it says $2-off a latte! and he thinks two dollars off? I wasn’t sleeping anyway so he lifts himself out of bed and puts on his foil bathrobe, his knees feeling fuzzy again, like the meniscus-fluid is drying out & not already replaced by new-and-improved-synthetic but nope (he checks his watch) the outpatient surgery 99% trouble-free was last week. Finally he gets to the Starbucks in his kitchen and he holds out his wrist for the machine to scan.

". . . $2 off a latte!, I wasn't sleeping anyway . . ." sounds like something I would write :D
I'd schlep to the StaBA in my kitchen for that too. I'll give this story a 8.5/10, for sounding like me
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.
