Coffee Spills

What I hear and see and think about at the coffee shops I patronize.
Brisk. Fresh. Well-balanced. Occasional nutty and bittersweet overtones.

Back to the regulars

After a pleasant summer having my morning coffee at Coffee 'n Cream in Lakeside it was back to Panera's this week. As I left yesterday I had to walk past two young goth-grunge young women with their hair dyed black (I thought that look had gone out in the 90s). One was smoking. As I walked through her smoke (avoiding the rain so we were all close to the building) I said, "That causes wrinkles, you know." She was quite startled and tried to think of a snappy come-back, but just managed a sarcastic, "Thank you."
