Thank you to…


To the Caffé Nero Barista with the funny hair,

I walked into your little coffee shop and took a deep breath of that familiar caffeinated air. As I waited in line, I rehearsed my order, ready to announce it to you after eight long months.  Then you looked at me, smiled, and before I could utter a word, you said, “Tall soy chai?”  

Yeah, exactly.  

I nodded, and smiled that you remembered me, remembered what I like, after all this time.  

Thanks, Buddy.

  1. I work at a coffee shop, and I love it when I’m able to remember what people drink, even after long absences.

    That’s pretty awesome to remember after 8 months, though.
