My thoughts today are brought to you from my adorable great-nephew. He was out with his Daddy the other day at Starbucks. They were behind a lady in line who had been scrolling and scrolling through her phone while waiting in line. Her turn came and she boldly stated, ” Its my birthday, I want my free Starbucks.” The barista looked at her and said, “Excuse me.” So she repeated herself, “Its my birthday I want my free Starbucks.” She went on to say that she heard that there is some app that you can get and you get free Starbucks. The barista asked if she had their Starbucks app. “No, but its my birthday and I want something free,so I want a free Starbucks.” He explained to her how that wasn’t exactly how it worked, but she persisted and she did end up walking away with something free. After my nephew’s Daddy ordered his Starbucks, my 4 year old nephew looked up at him and said, “Daddy if that lady wanted something free, I could have given her a free hug!”
I am really thinking that sometimes children should rule the world!
