Today’s Cup 95 was purchased at Starbucks, zip code 97303. Since no one queued up behind me in the drive-thru, I left $5.00 with the barista. As he rang up my soy latte, the perky Snowman Cookie Barista shouted out an enthusiastic hello and reminded the other barista that she is known in my blog by name. He laughed a bit, and then took a moment to think about his response after I asked him what he would like to use for his barista name. He replied: “Oh, how about Cranberry Bliss.”
After a quick sip of my latte, he must have noticed my quizzical look, and repeated the name again. I reminded him that once he became Cranberry Bliss, he would go down in the annals of Cup of Kindness blog history–ad infinitum. He smiled and said: “Yep, I’m sure, it’s Cranberry Bliss.” So it was another pass thru, with an unknown patron for the $5.00 cup of goodwill, but two quirky baristas who made me laugh. It was a good day. So here’s to more Fully Caffeinated Generosity and Hope, and then some.
