It’s 8:05am and class has started. Don bought me a coffee…my first one in about a month (I know, down from my weekly addiction…but I’m a grad student, funds are low). I got to the front of the line and ordered my Tall, Skinny Wild Zebra (with whipped cream on top) and a bagel (sliced, toasted, with butter) to go. And the lady at the counter said, “The guy behind you is buying drinks today." I thought she meant for his work…like he’s taking ten drinks to his office. So when she said, “It’ll be $1.67” I replied with, “Are you going to charge me for the drink?”
I know, it wasn’t even 8a at that point. I walked down the counter and asked the lady making my drink, “Who is that guy?”
“Oh, that’s Bob. …The co-founder of Biggby.” He’s also the CEO.
That made my day. Don was going to buy me a coffee but heck, when the co-founder of your favorite coffee place buys my coffee, Don takes a back seat. Sorry hubby…you can have the front seat on the way to the airport Sunday.
I blog because that made my day. I would have loved to stay and chatted with Bob but I had to get off to class…man, this class is definitely getting in my way! First, the wedding, now this… (Note to self:) I guess I should take a hint that summer was never meant for classes.
Bob has a blog: www.behappylounge.com. He also told me there are tons of drinks not on the menu. Why not? I’d probably venture outside of my norm.
Thanks for the Coffee Bob!
Oh yeah, I got a 95 on my Group Therapy Paper that was due yesterday. Thanks for your prayers!
