Today’s Cup 84 was attempted at Starbucks, zip code 97071. It was late in the evening, minutes before our local shop was scheduled to close. As my trusty co-pilot and I ordered, we saw a sedan queue up in our rear-view, only to pull out of the line. As the barista rang up the order, with only minutes to spare, we felt a bit bummed that we missed the day’s unsuspecting patron. That cup of kindness wasn’t meant to be, for sure.
As we drove off into the evening, enjoying our late-night coffee, my co-pilot laughed as that sedan turned around and quickly entered the drive-thru…guaranteed to be last car of the night. It was then my co-pilot made me laugh, reminding me this coffee blog project is not an exact science. As he reminded me, it’s a daily coffee crapshoot. Yes, for sure. Just like life. We continued to laugh a bit, enjoying the missed attempt at Fully Caffeinated Generosity and Hope. So after those first few sips, we agreed, there’s always tomorrow.
