Today’s Cup 218 was transacted at Starbucks, zip code, 97307. It was a rare occasion to return to my [original] home-base Starbucks, where the blog started, but a great stop nonetheless. The kind barista did a pause-meets-double-take when I verified that I was willing, equipped, and poised to pay for the $11.00 tab for the white sedan queued up in my rear-view. Since the barista was not one of the “old-timers” that remembered me from last year, it took her a moment to make the connection. She then handed over my iced tea and shouted out: “Oh, I totally remember you, the blogger that started a chain one day, that’s you!” Yep, we both smiled. With that, I hoped that driver behind me was smiling too. What a great day.
So here’s to another day down toward the mission of Fully Caffeinated Generosity and Hope. Until next time. Big or small.
