Some chocolate on your coffee, Miss?

I was at my local Italian deli.

She was a lovely young woman at the coffee machine. Huge dark eyes, deep brown skin and a generous smile.

She turned to ask how I liked my coffee and called me “Miss”!

Standing in line, I remembered my grey hair, the freckles and age spots on my skin. The fine lines that were starting to crease around my eyes.

I couldn’t help grinning.

I said no to the chocolate. But said bless you and thank you for her kindness.

The image of the coffee cup in my hand was taken on my phone and edited using the Hipstamatic App.
