It Was My Treat!

Today's temps were in the 70s (!!!!) when I woke up.  That meant ONE thing.  A chilly morning like that demanded that I drink a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte.  I had lots of errands to run, so I figured this would be a perfect treat to take along as I ran around town.

What does THIS have to do with Ultimate To DO week?  Well, I'll tell you.

GOAL: Go to a Starbucks Drive Through and Pay for the Order of the Car Behind Me

As I headed over, I got so excited. I began to imagine how much fun it would be to pull up to the window and be told that my drink was paid for already.  What a treat to give that gift to someone else! When this lovely lady pulled up behind me I started to get ALL nervous.  Seriously, there were genuine butterflies in my tummy.  Suddenly I stopped and realized, what if she was on an errand to pick up coffee for the whole office?  Or what if she was doing early Christmas shopping and picking up SEVERAL bags of coffee for each of her 25 cousins?  This little goal could get super expensive!!!  EEEEEEKKKK.

Look!! There's the woman waiting in her car behind me!!

I spent the next few minutes waiting for my pumpkin spicy goodness and convincing myself that it's only money and the excitement she would feel would be worth any price.

When I pulled up to the window I paid for my drink, her SINGLE drink and drove away fully excited once again!

Alright, so it turns out that crossing this item off the list didn't make for the most titillating blog post.  But I'm here to tell you that it was a terrifically fun experience that I'll probably do again soon!!

By the way, I can't take credit for this idea. 
I blatantly stole it from Angela Noelle at Tomorrow is Another Day
You should check out her fantastic blog and tell her "howdy"!!!
I'm pretty certain she'll provide more entertainment than I have today.

Buuuuuuut, as long as you're here... have any of you ever been on the receiving end of an
unexpected treat from someone you didn't know?
