The best things in life are free...

and that goes DOUBLE for coffee!

I walked into my local Stop 'N' Rob for my morning coffee, and found the manager singing along with Olivia Newton John to "Hopelessly Devoted to You" from the Grease soundtrack.

I, nothing loath, immediately chimed in, and we sang to end of the song together as I filled up my travel mug with coffee.

Apparently this charmed said manager sufficiently enough to tell me, "This one's on me!" when I walked up to the register to pay!

Never thought my pipes would earn me a dime, much less a cup of coffee...can I call myself a professional singer now? ;)

"Will sing for coffee."

Heh. You're a MUCH better person than I, Christina. Had I seen/heard that manager's performance I would have turned on my heel and sought out another place for coffee. NOTHING good comes out of an Olivia Newton-John performance (with the exception of free coffee for being a co-conspirator).

Buck...but it was GREASE!!!

Don't you know how that movie made a young girl's heart go pitter-pat? How she memorized all the songs even though she was only eight years old and most of the lyrics were totally over her head?

THIS is the kind of connection the manager and I had, right down to exchanging Grease trivia. Singing was only a (very funny) part of it. :D
