"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 LevelFirst 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 MercuryThursday 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 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.
St.Arbuck, I'm going for a natural colored, natural flavored beverage in a mug made of clay. No #unicorns for me, real is better!— Amalia Morusiewicz (@FunfromAtoZ) April 22, 2017
