Fast Friday

This is going to be a fast Friday post, mainly because I'm running late. You see, last night I came home from work and thought I would relax for a moment. Well, I ended up falling asleep in my chair (hubby was on the couch asleep) and we woke up around eleven. Then of course, I'd slept too long so my body thought it was morning and there was no way I was going back to sleep again - neither was my husband. So we did what any couple who can't sleep and has no kids does at midnight - we went to Walmart to buy Bounce because I ran out last time I did laundry.

Got home and finally went back to sleep around 3, so I'm starting a little late this morning.

Had an interesting thing happen at Starbucks - I was in line at the drivethrough and when I pulled up to the window, the guy said the lady in front of me had paid for my coffee - it was part of a "pass the cheer" campaign they were doing and then he asked me if I wanted to pay for the guy behind me. So I did and found out I was the 12th person in a row to "pass the cheer." Kinda a cool idea. And if you've never seen the movie "Pay It Forward," you should.

Oh well, off to work. Have a great weekend, everyone!

What an awesome Pass the Cheer idea. I love it! I have to admit last time I went to a Starbucks drive thru I paid for my coffee then drove off without it. I was five miles away before I even noticed lol.

LOL Wendy - I have done that with fast food! And then you feel uber stupid. :) But thanks for the laugh!

That's a very cool idea. I've been craving a peppermint mocha maybe I can pass on some cheer today, too.

Jana DeLeon said...

Hey, there is always room in life for a peppermint mocha. BTW - have you checked out the dessert menu at Mimi's - yum!

Jaye Wells said...

Jana, no but I definitely will next week. ;)

This is a great idea! I actually read about this happening (on the back of the cup of my daily Starbucks intake)! The cup said that it lasted for over 30 cars - WOW. Happy holidays to you...and Starbucks

What an awesome idea! I wonder if that would work at a fast food restaurant! You never know!
