At A Starbucks in O’Hare

Standing at the coffee & creamer counter, trying to get a napkin.

Woman: Sorry, did you need creamer? Am I in your way?

Me: No, just a napkin, thanks.

W: You don't put anything in your coffee?

M: Nope.

W: Typical Chicagoan.

M: Umm.. no, I just landed here to catch another flight. I'm not from Chicago.

W: Well, still. Seems to be a Chicago thing, drinking your coffee black.

M: I just... like.. coffee to be coffee.

W: But it's still weird.

M: .... Ok. Have a nice day then.

Lady, I'm sure there are a thousand other reasons I can give you to consider me weird. The way I drink my coffee is way, WAY low on that list.

It’s Just Coffee, 2…

Taken at the Southside Bistro in Anchorage.  This was a great warm-up coffee and late lunch after I hiked a cross-country ski trail in motorcycle boots and a light nylon jacket.  I watched a snow-storm approaching from over the mountains near Flattop, high above the city of Anchorage.

Hmm... I will have to post those pictures in here somewhere, too.

It’s Just Coffee

Perhaps one of the best cups of coffee I ever had.  An early morning walk from my hotel to where I had to work in Melbourne.  There was a tiny cafe that served fantastic panini sandwiches and some of the richest coffee I have ever had.  I didn't even mind that the jet lag had me waking up at 4:30AM every day...  it gave me time to enjoy this.
