Today’s cup of free coffee goodwill took place at Starbucks, 97071. For those of you who follow this blog, you know this detail places me smack dab in the middle of Oregon. Sports fans know what this means. The Fiesta Bowl. Oregon and Kansas State. In Arizona, tonight.
Now, not to detract from the blog’s real purpose of coffee and kindness, it was a simple transaction. The friendly barista was more than happy to quickly facilitate my pending gratis Starbucks rewards. I used my free points to purchase my latte and the order for driver in my rear-view as well. To the driver in the Honda who rang up a $9.20 coffee and snack tab, haven’t we met before? Really, we should stop meeting like this. I swear, you unsuspecting patrons are all starting to look alike. The ubiquitous gray sedan, coffee and a scone. Although becoming familiar, it still makes me smile.
Wishing all good tidings, in the spirit of Fully Caffeinated Generosity and Hope. On this 10th day of Christmas. Here’s to more coffee and a good game. Go Ducks.
