It's a Friday afternoon right now and it's unreasonably sunny for March. Just yesterday it was snowing and cold. I think Mother Nature is having a fit of mood swings. And as for me, I'm standing in line at a Starbucks.
As I wait, I notice that the woman in front of me has her hair up like mine and I can't help but wonder what sort of hair tie she uses.
The couple in front of the line have ugly shoes on and seem to take great care with their order, as if they've never been at a Starbucks before.
The cashier has too much self tanner on and reminds me of the star of the movie Bridesmaids except she doesn't look like she'd be funny.
I'm almost to the front of the line and stare at the CDs near me. I wonder if this is where music goes to die.
I've made my order as I wait for my drink I notice two men sitting at a table and one holds a book with the title, "A Small Business Bible." He looks like he is conning the other man, who stares at him with great awe and admiration.
As I grab my drink, I see a young guy sitting at a table all on his own, listening to music, with a criminal justice textbook near him, but I don't think he's studying at all. He keeps looking around at the people coming in and out of Starbucks, bobbing his head up and down to the beat.
Meanwhile, a girl sits by the guy studying criminal justice and sits in a such a proper and poised way that only reveals her wish that he would talk to her.
