“S’more, please”

It’s really just a silly little story… “Umm…It’s been a long time…I didn’t expect to see you here.” “Hmm.” He sips his S’more Frappuccino, there’s froth on his upper lip. “And yet, here I am.” “Well, you know how busy I’ve been; with work, family, hobbies — life. So very busy.” “Hmm.” He raises his eyebrows.” “Okay. Yeah, I know, totally lame excuses. It’s just that I don’t always see you, so I forget you’re there…here. It’s not intentional. Not personal.” Uncomfortable silence, stares. We sigh in unison. “You forget about me becausIMG_0645e I’m like the air you breath, the sun you soak in. I get it. You’re busy. Oh, so very busy.” I look down. “Hey, no, really, I get it. Don’t worry. Really. I’m here whenever, wherever. Just look me up and we’ll hang out together.” “Wow. You’re so understanding. So cool. I love that about you.” “Yeah, me too.” He does a goofy little head shake. “Have you tried this S’more drink? It’s dee-lish.” “No, I’m a Weight Watcher.” He gasps, “You need to live a little.” I smile, “maybe next time.” “I’ll be here.”

It’s amazing how much you can say on a small cup.

    I so hope you are saving these cups. One day, when you are old (if you ever feel that way) you can pull these out and smile again.
