Starbucks. The prime location for me to run into anyone and everyone before I’ve had enough caffeine for my eyes to fully open. Typically I run into ex-boyfriends, their ex-girlfriends, former employers, my friends’ former employers and a couple times, Keith Urban. Other times, I make a new friend while in line and this morning, he was both charming and unmarried.
He made fun of me for checking my emails before coffee. I assured him I wasn’t replying to anything since it’s important to first be able to form complete sentences. I paid using the handy dandy app on my phone. He said I was too high-tech for him, then asked how I did that. I waited for my latte while we made small talk and once we both were good to go, he said he wouldn’t keep me any longer. Big smile and what looked like an attempted wink.
I smiled back. No wink. (Winks freak me out.)
Then, as he held the door for me he said, “Maybe we’ll run into each other again soon?”
Um, sure, yes ok….what I managed to say was, “Definitely, I hope so.”
He then smiled, cheers-ed me with his Venti and told me to have a great day. In a movie he would have asked for my number after telling me he had to run to the courtroom/ER but whatever! Nice guy.
Maybe he’s right and we will run into each other again or maybe he’s watched Serendipity too many times. We may never know! Regardless, this handsome, seemingly normal missed connection put a smile on my face before 9 am and that is worth mentioning.
