Notes from a Coffee ShopPosted: January 28, 2011
It’s funny how the line forms at the coffee shop. None of us are entirely sure where to stand since the line doesn’t really seem to have a beginning or an end. So we make a decision, and we decide to stand behind THAT guy. Why do we assume that he knows so much better where to stand than we do? We wait patiently (and sometimes impatiently) for our turn at the register, and by the time we get there most of us have forgotten why we wanted coffee in the first place. The barista takes our order, and we once again find ourselves in a sort of bean-inspired limbo, waiting to retrieve the drink we know we want but don’t know why.
Does anyone ever order just plain coffee at the coffee shop anymore? Do they even serve it there?
