"My Lovely Sandwich Experience"
As I stood waiting in line,
one of my favorites,
a blonde girl
with lime green gauges
For the long wait
with a shrug and said,
"I was taught the scientific method
In school and how to count numbers
I get that there were a lot of people
and it would therefore take longer"
She laughed and said,
"Oh wow, that is amazing"
She winked and added she would
try to memorize how I like my wrap
For next time
As i finished the line,
The very sweet middle-aged gentleman
With a clear mental impairment
Bagged my food and ran the till
I always call him,"Sir"
He is freaking adorable
Because when he sees me come in,
He always gives me a special kind of greeting
Happy and beaming, that makes me feel seen
Today he said to me,
"I want you to know
We all really like you here
Everyone of us
You are welcome anytime
And we enjoy it when you come"
It took him awhile to get out
Like he had prepared it beforehand
Then he gave me knuckles
And you know, of all the things that
Happened that day
It was that which struck my heart
The most thoroughly...
