After yoga today, I’m checking out so I give the lady at the front desk my name so she can give me my ID card.
She asks, "Stephanie, were you in Hallmark magazine?"
“No… but I am a writer, but haven't written anything for that magazine.”
“Well, I read something that said your name and our city and something about yoga…”
“Oh yeah! I did give someone a quote about yoga and they must have published it.”
(Does this mean I’m getting famous?!?!? I'm getting recognized! Hahahahah.)
So then, I went to Starbucks with my friend. We just did yoga and we were feeling really charged, and my other neighbor had just given me a $25 gift card because I helped her out with her charming and cute daughter before and after school a couple times. So, I bought our other friend a coffee (because SHE bought ME lunch at Subway yesterday), and then I turned around and saw a guy waiting in line behind me.
“Hey, what do you want?" I asked him. "I’m buying!”
He was like, “You don’t have to do that.”
“No, I want to! Look, I got like a thousand bucks on this card! I’ll never be able to use it all, plus you don’t look like the type of guy who’s gonna get all fru-fru on me and order some freaked-out double-chunk-o-frappy-whappy-latty-blatty-triple-shot-o-venti-iced-frap thing are you?”
“No.” He looked a little frightened.
“So, tell her what ya want!” I said, pointing to the barrista.
“I’ll have a grande caramel macchiato?”
“Give this guy a grande caramel macchiato!” I yelled, like I was buying shots for a whole bar or something.
I seriously bought the guy his coffee! And it felt AWESOME!!! I hope he then went on with his day felt happier than when he walked into Starbucks, and I hope he then did something nice for someone else. There’s really something to be said for paying it forward! So, thanks to MY neighbor who bought ME lunch yesterday, and my OTHER neighbor who gave me the Starbucks card in the first place! Share the love people!
