Overheard at Starbucks:

Hi, how can I help you?

Do you guys have pumpkin scones?

We sure do.

I would like one please.

Anything to drink?


Okay, that will be $1.85. (buttons, rings, dings, drawer opens, closes – hands scone over)

Thanks. Hey. Why are you guys wearing halos?

(boy fumbles, embarrassed to be 32 and working at Starbucks, unknowing of the real reason why he is wearing a halo over his baseball Starbucks cap. Secret? He sneaks Starbucks snacks in the back room.) Well, it’s a Christmas thing I guess.

Oh. Right.
