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.

Dads do it

Yesterday morning at the coffee shop here in Lakeside I saw a very tall 40-something dad with his even taller teen-ager, maybe 15 or 16. Only the dad wore an earring. I remember back in the early 80s if your son wore an earring, he was clearly a rebellious kook and the parents feared he was gay. Now it's just dad being a hasbeen or having a mid-life crisis.
