Today’s Cup 96 was transacted at Starbucks, zip code 97303. Under the beautiful spring skies of 60°, the Snowman Cookie Barista greeted me and happily rang up my soy latte. As I paid $4.40 for the patron in the white Acura, the barista said: “Oh, she’s a regular, and is going to love the free coffee!” As she handed over my coffee, I also heard a friendly shout out from Mack, the Cup 8 Texas Barista. I grabbed my coffee and yelled out happy Spring Break wishes to everyone at the window.
As I drove off, with a hot latte and a car full of sunshine, I smiled over another day in the mission. It was day ninety-six in a string of three hundred and sixty-five days toward Fully Caffeinated Generosity and Hope. Cheers. Until tomorrow.
