Mercy, Mercury and Mugs

"Ted, is he that guy that uses the F-word all the time?"

That's the answer, that I got to  did you see Papa Francesco on a TED talk? Admittedly, this friend is not big on social media--and maybe that's a good thing.

JEDI Level

First off, us humans--admit it, you are human--we don't like to feel stupid. I'm so proud of this friend, whose response was laughter and human joy when I said--no those 15 min, on a stage presentations--you know, TED TALKS. Yes, finding humor and being at ease--these are definitely Jedi level qualities. AND yes, I love my StarWars mythology--yes, mythology--much more than the stories, books, or movies.

Meeting Mercury

Thursday lunch for me was a 1pm quick drive through lunch. Not at the King or the Arches--but at a temple of caffeine and cool:

Saint Arbucks.

The young dude at at Starbucks, a young adult (not a kid), as per his nametag, he is MERCURY. I see it when, "I pull up" to swap my plastic money with the dude at the window, for caffeine, sugar and protein (yeah, I know not real food.)  I couldn't resist and ask, "first or last name--and did your folks like
Freddie Mercury?"
Grinning, he responded that his pops liked Greek Mythology, and he seemed pleased to be associated with Freddie Mercury.

Truthfully (why do we say, truthfully? doesn't it put the rest in question)

Truthfully, I don't know if he knows  Queen's long lost front man, or that Hermes is Greek and Mercury, Roman? I didn't bring that up.  Why? cause the words of Papa Francesco--which are so much like those of a certain webslinger, So you say, I am not powerful? I know that it's a luxury to spend $17.76 at a drive through, in a vehicle I own--yes 2 Fraps (extra caramel) and a protein box) I wield my responsibly with care and purpose. Last Saturday, I got up early and drove out to Historic Ellicott City, to have breakfast at Bean Hollow and drink coffee from a genuine mug made in a Barn. Yes, I did tweet this, surprised a young relative. Since, I'm not a JEDI level Tweeter,  I didn't tag StArbucks properly. But, that's ok. I wasn't looking to chat with @starbucks, just the world at large to say;
I'm going for real, real is better.

  • being brave we nurture our future, treasure the love and teach without bias. My respect to all those parents and kids of the last sixteen years who rebuild trust and hope while ensuring safety in these uneasy times--where a smile can seem rude or callous on q day of pain. I smile that all those who give aid, that they feel the love, that unending awe , that honors their sacrifice #bernesemountaindog #bmd #moon #patriotday #parents #teachers
  • Baysox Season ended -- top of the ninth on day nine of month nine on this my twenty-ninth year after school. My words spill out in cadence with Giamatti's GreenFields. This game evolved, the minor leagues fly through games in under two hours. Pace of the Game rules in action. Pack up Baysox until next spring, to restart that pattern of life, and hope. @bowiebaysox @milb @ballislife #sports #lifelessons
