I knew it when I found you sitting on my usual spot at my favorite coffee shop that we share something special. Walking towards a table next to yours, I caught you glancing into my direction, flashed a smile and all of a sudden, you started to gleam and everyone else, everything else, went in slow motion – blurred and dimmed. Eventually, time froze with you in the middle. Then I heard someone calling my name and all went to its normal pace again. Aha, you are sharing a table with someone I know, and was overjoyed when offered the seat beside yours. With a big smirk, I gladly accepted the invitation. Swiftly en routing to your table, I glanced at your cup that reads – “Non-fat Caramel Macchiato with whipped cream.” You then noticed that am holding the very same drink – you raised your cup, broke the ice and said, “Hey, we have the same drink. Non-fat Caramel Macchiato with whip, my fave!” I replied with a big grin, “Mine too!” 30 minutes ticked and the talk over coffee was cut short as I have to go. I got you on FB now and am pretty sure it’ll not be the last chitchat over our fave cup. And maybe, just maybe, we would be sharing the same drink on one venti mug someday. Wishful. Hopeful. Excited. Current life mantra changed instantly to wise words from Uncle Walt Disney -“If you dream it, you can achieve it.” Slept on it, hugging my bolster pillow as tight as I can.
“Hey, are you up for another cup of non fat caramel macchiato with whip?” Reads the SMS I received at 7:30 in the morning the next day. “Yes please!” I replied giddily.
Blithely, It’s not just the choice of coffee that we share in common, we share the same spark too. 😉
