I am an idiot. I don’t say this lightly but I have come to this conclusion after much thought. Allow me to explain.
I was sitting in Starbucks this afternoon, reading a very interesting magazine (from which I have many blog-worthy posts to come) with a nice refreshing Frappacino. I drank said frappacino quite quickly and enjoyed it. Alas, my enthusiasm meant I was without beverage to carry on reading. I read for a while and then figured since I was without beverage and there were a few people looking to sit down, I’d leave and go enjoy the sunshine. I started packing up when two guys came up to me. They were holding drinks and had a third one in a cardboard tray.
Guy: Would you by any chance like a tall mild coffee? My friend doesn’t want it and it would go to waste.
Me: Um …. sure, okay. Thanks!
I took the drink (colour me naive or stupid for taking a drink from a stranger, whatever), went to fill it up with milk and splenda, glanced over at the guys, nodded and left. I was in the process of leaving before so I just took the drink along.
I realised 10 minutes later that both guys already HAD drinks in their hands – what was the third drink for? It occured to me then that perhaps I had just been hit on and had a drink bought for the express purpose of giving it to ME.
So I feel stupid. Slap me please.
It just never occurs to me that these things happen. I mean, random guys buying a coffee for a random girl at Starbucks. Really? And then the fact that it happens to me. Really? So it doesn’t cross my mind that it might not be entirely random or motive-less.
And then I feel stupid.
I seriously don’t think of myself as pick-up-worthy and I need to change that. So can someone slap some sense into me.
(and damn, the guys were CUTE too!)
