Was It a Sign?

I’ve been struggling with sleep lately, and sleeping in just doesn’t seem possible anymore.

But this morning, I was in a deep sleep…one of those special nights where no dreams (or nightmares) are remembered and you feel refreshed.

But at 6:26 I was startled by the phone ringing.  It was a 703 area code number (out in Northern Virginia) and since we have lots of friends and former co-workers there I semi-consciously answered.

Caller – “Is this Starbucks?”

Me – “No it’s not Starbucks!”

Caller – “Sorry!”

Then click.

I am both amused and encouraged by this event.

I’m going to smile a lot if a Starbucks has now opened that is close enough to my phone number to cause these types of mistakes to occur!  I can have lots of fun with callers trying to reach Starbucks!

More importantly, since I don’t believe in coincidence, it must be a reminder (or a new power drinker targeted marketing campaign) that I’m supposed to use my more than $100 in Starbucks gift cards that are lying here in my desk, and use them today!
