"This is a day I thought would never happen," I said to the cashier at the store opening.
"Huh?" she chirped.
"Starbucks, here in the country."
"Here we are! We're excited, too."
"Overlooking the Wal-Mart," I narrated the scenery.
"We've got the best spot! Beef meat, Texas toast, next door!"
"Yes, so cosmopolitan!"
I savored the occasion, drinking my grande, no fat, no whip caffè mocha, while basking in dusk at our community's grandest, trendiest chicken house.
