Is that your burrito coach?

Not a question you really think about hearing I know.  I was in line waiting for my burrito to finish up recently when I drifted off.  I was likely thinking about some offense or defense or maybe not thinking at all when the man beside me said, “Is that your burrito coach?”  Yep, it was mine alright.  What struck me in this simple interaction is that I had no idea who he was.  I wasn’t wearing anything that said I was a coach, he just knew who I was.  This is so often the situation and I think it’s important for us to remember that we are always “on” when we’re out.  When people know who you are and that you’re in a position that comes with expectations the antennas go up. May we never give people a reason to remember us negatively.  You never know who’s beside you getting a burrito.
