When I went to the coffee shop last Friday morning, it was far too early. I walked in before 6:30, and the cashier was impressively perky. Not annoyingly so...I was simply amazed at how awake she was considering she probably got there an hour or so earlier. As I waited for my white mocha to be made, the other girl working asked how I was. "Tired," I replied. She said that she was tired too, and we chatted idly while she topped my drink with whipped cream. After she put the lid on she picked up a couple of chocolate-covered espresso beans and placed them on top. "These will help keep you awake," she explained. It made my morning. I need to remind myself to remember things like this when I'm having trouble making it through the day.
