Three Seconds of Magic

Today, before heading out to McDonald’s for lunch, I took a minute and stated a very clear intention to the Universe that I would get to interact with Matthew today, and that there would be playful banter involved.

When I got there, Matthew was not behind the counter. Another cute young guy who also works there on weekends took my order.

After I took my seat and started eating, I could hear Matthew’s very distinctive voice up at the counter, so I knew he was back.

I wondered what to do. The idea came to me to go back to the counter and ask for a small cup of extra ice for my drink, even though I didn’t really need it.

Both Matthew and the other young guy were behind the counter when I walked up. I asked for my cup of ice. The other young guy went and got it for me.

“That’ll be a trillion dollars,” Matthew joked.

“Put it on my tab,” I shot back, the first thing that popped into my head.

It was a wonderful, magical three seconds. And for now, it was enough.

Keep in mind that Matthew has waited on me many times over the past year or so, and although he always remembers me and what I like to drink, he has never joked or engaged in banter with me before. He has always kept it very cool and professional.

It was awesome. I asked for banter, and he initiated it.

Don’t try to tell me that the Law of Attraction is “a bunch of hooey”. To that I say Phooey!
