Coffee with Bob?

definitely not Bob!Adam aka ‘The Witness’ and I met up at the local Starbucks a few days ago. When the barista asks for his name, Adam decides to call himself Bob, just to poke fun at me and our old schoolmates. Everyone wants to know: who is Bob?

The barista looks at him non-chalantly and then smiles away, probably after being told  by the voice  in his head “follow your training, my young Padawan

I whisper at Adam, “you see even this stranger knows you are not Bob”

Adam grins back.

Bob is special, isn’t he? The gap between me and him must be huge. 

I stay quiet, but whispered in my heart.

The gap between most of us and Bob is huge. We all have a long way to go.
