While (im)patiently waiting for my Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte to be made, a barista calls out for Jack. When Jack retrieves his purchase, he grins with pride as he hoists the drink in salute to the female friend/colleague/whatever standing beside him.
“I came faster.”
No, I sincerely did not know the man at all.
No, I sincerely could not resist.
No, I sincerely did not care.
“You know most guys do not admit that out loud or with pride.” I grinned.
Thankfully yes, he and his female friend/colleague/whatever had a sense of humor and laughed.
