My Cup Runneth Over

My husband and I headed out early this morning to get to the airport for his flight to drill weekend in California.

Considering it is a brisk 49°, with a chilling north wind, I decided to wear my Air Force jacket for the little trip across the river.

After I dropped him off, I decided to drive through Starbucks on the way home. There is nothing like a good cup of coffee in this kind of weather.

So, I pulled up to order and an enthusiastic voice boomed over the box to greet me. “Good morning, welcome to Starbucks. This is Captain America, what can I get started for you today?”

Even though I was a little taken off guard, I went with it and replied accordingly. Once I drove up he noticed my jacket and asked if I were in the Air Force. I told him I had just recently gotten out, but my husband was still in.

As it turned out, he is also a member of the Air Force and we chitchatted about our jobs, etc., while the coffee was being made.

Then he handed me my cup and I handed him a twenty, but he waved it off and said, “don’t worry about it, we have to look out for each other.”

Now, that’s what I’m talking about. If only everyone thought that way...but then again, not everyone is Captain America - unfortunately.

Mindy - yes, it was very nice of him - quite unusual.

John - especially free coffee.

Ray - No, no costume, just in high spirits I guess. He's mine now too. :)
