There I was…tired, hungry, holding an overpriced açai bowl, and standing in line at a Starbucks. Truly I didn’t expect anything nor was I trying to talk to anyone. I just wanted to get this $7.00 glorified smoothie and get back to work. But then I saw him, the love of my life, the man of my dreams, right next to me in the line of Starbucks. I had to do a double take because I didn’t think it was true. Tall with the perfect amount of scruff, style without trying too hard, and he wore glasses? He was the one!
Before I knew it we made eye contact, and then we looked away. We continued to sneak glances at each other, and just as I had mustered up the courage to comment about our wait in the Starbucks line…it was his turn to order. Obviously a regular, he made small talk with the barista, ordered a black coffee, and left without a word.
And there I was…left with only a memory and an açai bowl
