Sad, I agree.
This weekend has been a welcome dose of downtime. I’ve spent it pretending I don’t own a car and have done my share of walking.
I even found time to visit my coffee shop not only once, but THREE full-morning’s in a row.
The first morning, I asked my barista, “has it been busy?”, thinking to myself, ‘it’s a long weekend, likely a slow day.’
She replied, “It’s been quite busy,” rubbing the sweat from her brow, “you see, Birds and Beans customer’s do not stray far from the coffee shop,” raising her hands to demonstrate a small radius, “not even on beautiful long weekends.”
Touché, is all I could muster for a reply.
