Some Day My Prince Will Come

Tonight Coach and I had a real live date where we went to dinner and a football game alone, and he wasn’t coaching.

Anyway, we got a little chilled, so after the game we went to Starbucks where Coach made himself a new friend:

Perky Starbucks Girl (who we’ll now refer to as PSG): “Hello there, what can I get you this lovely evening? ” (And y’all I am NOT exaggerating when I tell you that she spoke in a Disney Princess talking to birds and deer in a meadow kind of voice.)

Coach: “Can we get a grande hot chocolate?”

PSG: “Ooooooh good choice. Can I put a shot of peppermint in that for you?”

Me (to Coach): “oh no- yuck.”

Coach: “No, not tonight thanks. And can I also get a Tall Peppermint Mocha decaf?”

PSG: “Oh sure. Can I tempt you with a double chocolate brownie or a biscotti as well?”

Coach: “No than–“

PSG: “Oooooh, but it’s tempting isn’t it? Mmmm mmm.”

Me: Eyes rolling as I mouth “seriously” to Coach

Coach: “Yes, very tempting, but I think we’re good.”

PSG: “Okay, that will be $6.99. I’ll see you when you turn the corner.”

Me: (thinking to myself) Yeah, I’m gonna turn your corner sister.

Coach: (to me) “Oh babe, she’s just enjoying her job.”

And again, I am not exaggerating…

Coach: “Oh my. I do believe that PSG has a bejeweled headset. Are those sequins?”

Me: “Yes. Her headset, is in fact, bejeweled. So lame. And are those cartooned bluebirds flying around her head???”

Coach: “Be nice. There’s nothing wrong with bejeweling your headset.”

Me: “Hmmmph. I bet Big Mama would have a HUGE problem with a bejeweled headset. Matter of fact, I’m totally writing in to see if she’ll comment on whether bejeweling is in or out this season.”

Coach: “Big Mama?”

Me; “Do you even know me?”

Our turn to pay…

PSG: “Hello there! Here is your hot chocolate. Your peppermint mocha is coming right….” She looks around a moment “Huh. Well goodness, let me go find out where that mocha is.”

Coach: Grinning ridiculously at this point, he looks at me “She’s older than I pictured her.”

Me: “Why are you picturing her. And SERIOUSLY????”

Coach: “Oh babe…”

PSG: “Here’s your mocha sir. Have a lovely evening.” BIG. SPARKLY. STARBUCKS. GRIN.

Coach: “Thank you. You have a lovely evening too.” BIG. SPARKLY. STARBUCKS. GRIN.

Me: “Really Coach? You just said lovely. I’ve never known you to say lovely.”

Coach: “What? I’m just being nice.”

Me: “Why are you being so weird? You’re all jolly and giddy”

Coach: “I’m always jolly and giddy. I’m a happy guy.”

Me: “Dude, I live with you. The gig is up.”

Coach: “Mmm. The peppermint makes my gums tingle….” BIG. SPARKLY. STARBUCKS. GRIN.

So, it looks like I’ve got to go find a bejeweled headset, learn how to make peppermint mochas, and sing “Some Day My Prince Will Come” whenever he enters the room.

See y’all.

    Sigh. Men. Easily distracted by the flashing rhinestones and sparkling grins.
