Beautiful Barista

Beautiful Barista

After a fifteen minute walk to the station, I enter The Cappuccino Bar, the coffee joint where I get my morning fix. The barista nods in greeting. I don’t have to say anything; he knows what I want. But when it’s time to pay, the penny drops. I am without a wallet. That’s half-an-hour lost right there. A thirty minute circular detour of hard, berating steps. The barista, seeing the anguish play over my face, saves me from this fate. “Here,” he says, handing me twenty bucksĀ to go with my latte, “is this enough to get you through the day?” Yes it is, you beautiful man. “Thank you, you’re a life-saver. See you tomorrow.” #KindnessIsMagic
