No big deal, but I gave up Starbucks for Lent. No perfect oatmeal, iced teas, or soy chais for forty days. I’m not going to lie…some days were rough, but I persevered.
And now…Lent’s over.
So Monday morning, I went to my Starbucks for the first time in forty days, and the manager, Mark (who looks like Ben Linus from LOST), said, “Lisa! How are you? So good to see you!”
“You too! I haven’t been here for forty days! But I’m back now!”
Mark came out from around the counter, gave me a hug, and said, “Good to have you back.”
Yes, Ben…I mean, Mark.
It’s so good to be back.
