Today’s Cup 134 was transacted at Starbucks, zip code 97303. The barista was new to the process (blog project), but happily rang up the order behind me. She was a bit hesitant at first and asked: “Are you sure you want to pay for the order? It’s $10.80.” I assured her it was all good, all part of the project. She then excitedly asked about the blog. In addition to sharing blog details, I mentioned that she needed her barista name, since she was new to the mission. I decided to name her A+Barista, as homage to the first initial of her name.
As I drove off, I attempted to do the quick math to determine how many days are left in this project. I decided there’s still a long journey ahead so it would be best not to start the countdown. Not yet anyway. Not until I’m a tad closer to three hundred and sixty-five than not. Here’s to another day. Once again, I raise my paper cup to another shot of Fully Caffeinated Generosity and Hope.
