that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

This is hilarious.

Tonight I went to see my good friend Robyn while she was at work out in Langford and I wanted to surprise her with a coffee. Well, coffee for me, hot chocolate for her, as was the norm when we worked together at ATB Financial in Calgary. So I am waiting, freezing, in the drive thru for Starbucks, when I ordered:

One skinny latté with sugarfree vanilla and one hot chocolate with no whip.

I get to the actual pickup window and the girl, clearly embarrassed, says:

I was doing something else when I took your order and forgot to punch it in so what was it again? I am so embarrassed (see I made an astute observation, she even admitted the embarrassment).

I repeated and took out by debit card and she said

No, it was my stupidity that’s making you wait so long so these drinks are free.

Wow. That’s unreal and a total dream come true… so I took them and went happily on my way. So pumped to tell Robyn.

Until I got out of the car at the RR and proceeded to drop and explode my latté onto the pavement…and all over my newly cleaned car.

I did manage to save the hot chocolate so the good deed wasn’t totally lost.

I just really wanted that stinkin’ latté, ya know?
