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.

A carry-in McDonald's breakfast

A large overweight man brought in a huge sack of McDonald's breakfast items to the coffee shop at Giant Eagle. Maybe only the window was open at McDonald's and he wanted a sit down breakfast. Giant Eagle has a very tasty and inexpensive alternative to all that fat. A bowl of oatmeal with a lot of fresh fruit plus coffee or tea for $2.00.

Bi-lingual breakfast

A father and his young son were having breakfast together today at the coffee shop--sort of. The father was speaking Spanish and the son was replying in English and Spanglish. Then they both opened up their computers and worked separately. You gotta love these family bonding times.
