Cup 9

Today’s Cup of Fully Caffeinated Generosity and Hope was purchased at Starbucks drive-thru, zip code, 97303. As usual, service was swift and perfectly  transacted. As the barista simultaneously rang up my order, a few Venti White Mochas, and another specialty beverage, I knew the daily gift totaled more than just a few bucks. Once I explained that I wanted to pay for the order behind me, the barista said: “Well,  I think it’s a pretty big order.” I replied: “It’s OK, just ring it up.”

As I glanced in the rear-view mirror, I hoped the folks in the behemoth Sport Utility Vehicle appreciated the  $12.49 gift. After all, with the price of fuel, that  gas guzzler must easily bite into the driver’s coffee budget. All in a day’s work, I thought. The daily work of kindness and goodwill. Fully caffeinated, of course.
