Sunday morning, heading to the Houston airport, we stopped at Starbucks, as is our wont.
We pulled up to the drive-thru.
A friendly Barista male voice boomed out of the loudspeaker:
Good morning! Welcome to Starbucks, it's a beautiful day - I hope you’re having a wonderful day! What great-tasting drinks would you like today?
ThatManILove was rendered speechless.
The voice again: “Good morning! Hellooooo! Anyone there?”
ThatManILove: “Yes, I’m here. I’m...uh...just...uh...trying to recover from your overtly enthusiastic optimism.”
The voice, laughing: “That's an awesome response!!”
ThatManILove: “No problem, I just wasn’t expecting it.”
Me? I thought it was super refreshing.
We pull up, and the barista introduces himself.
Yes, I think I'll fill out the survey. Because to render my smart, lawyer-like man speechless is no mean feat.
