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.

Happy Father's Day

My regular Sunday coffee shop [Caribou] had a newbie on duty, and at 6:35 a.m., the coffee still wasn't made, so I hopped back in the car and went to another Caribou about a mile away. While sitting by the window I overheard the two guys behind the counter who were making the coffee and waiting on customers:

Clerk #1: "There was a guy in here yesterday--had four kids and his wife is pregnant with the fifth. All girls."

Clerk #2: "Oh God. I'd have to shoot myself."

Cross posted at my regular, all-topics, no-holds-barred, but always clean and tasteful Collecting My Thoughts.

    With an attitude like that, let's hope clerk #2 never procreates. Five kids sounds like (and is) a dream to me, despite the accompanying challenges. :)
