You never know who's watching

Many of you know me and my addiction to coffee. This morning while dropping the kids off at school I decided not to wait to get my morning coffee but to go ahead and buy one at The Cup. You never know who's going to be watching. Being that my coffee was only $1.00, I was able to gather a few coins from my purse to complete a dollar, so I paid for it. I got my cup, filled it, sweetened it and I was on my way......when the building lights went out. It was a practice fire drill so, we (L and I ) stood still while watching all the kids hurry out of the building. I then started talking to Christina (the coffee lady). L decided she needed to sit on the counter to talk too. So I put her up there. While we were talking L reaches into my purse, gets my check book out on with the search. As she's going through my wallet...... out goes the library card, the Tom Thumb card, gas card, then I see the look on her face, when she finally comes across my blue Chase debit card. She hands it over to Christina, who is then laughing. We both smile while still carrying on a conversation. So then L decides OK then, your talking so I'll swipe the card myself. So she does. By then we are both shocked but still talking like nothings really happening. She prints out a receipt gives it to her (and by then L is waiting with a pen to sign. ) She scribbles on it puts the flower pen back into it's container and hands her the slip. It was so cute! Christina then thought since she's paid ( or at least she thinks she did) I have to give her something. She found the smallest cup she could find with a lid, put a little of my coffee in it and she started to walk away when she finally turned around looked at me and said "Mommy copy, Mon". She calls coffee - copy. Put a smile on my face!
Just wanted to share the joys through the eyes of a 20 month old girl.

what a cute story. I find it so amazing how much they pick up on. If I tell the kids I don't have any money they will look in my wallet and point to the debit card and say use that.
