Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last photo you took.” Take the last photo you snapped. What’s the first word that comes to mind when you look at it? That word is your prompt. Enjoy!
How appropriate that the last photo that I took with my phone is one of food. I wrote about my perfect summer day in my last blog post.
While there are a few foods that I could have chosen to write about the word local encompasses so much right now. A couple days after my birthday in June my friend and I went to this coffee shop for a belated birthday treat. They had recently updated their mobile app and had some kinks to work out. Their debit machine wasn’t working so we ended up getting our order for free. Since it’s a local spot they get to know their regular customers and the barista knew I was one. On the day this photo was taken I saw the owner come out with someone’s order. I couldn’t hear the conversation but could tell by the exchange that her bowl was on the house because there was a mix up with the order and they had to wait a while. You don’t get that type of service at a chain like Starbucks or Tim Hortons. Shop local or support local is a hashtag that is used often. I know that this coffee shop appreciates every customer because it’s a choice where you choose to spend your money.
