#100HappyDays: Clinking frapps

I noticed the couple come in--the gentleman dutifully shepherding the woman and her walker into line and then to a seat nearby.

As they sat, I tried to concentrate on my pile of grading but I looked up to see them "clink" frappuccinos--hers espresso, his caramel--and my heart melted a little.

I listened to the pair chatter and realized it was mother and son, on a date. Eavesdropping a bit, as if I could help it sitting two feet away, I smiled to hear familiar family dramas hashed over with other details like an invitation to Best Buy sprinkled in.

While I didn't get my grading finished, I loved catching a glimpse of someone else's Friday afternoon.
