So someone wonderfully pointed out that my site is turning into a movie review site. Sorry. I’ve just been seeing lots of movies and they’re on the brain.
So here comes the daily observances of foibles.
This morning I was in line to order a coffee. I do this about once a week, if that. This is what happened:
Me: “Hi can I get a small latte.”
Barista Lady: “What kind of milk?”
BL: [not hearing me] “we have soy, skim, 1%, 2%-”
Me: “whole is fine.”
BL: “you sure?”
BL: [realizing she came off as judgemental] “Sorry. it’s just no one’s ordered regular for weeks. I gotta open a new one.”
… ah life in California.
LATER, IN THE ELEVATOR:
Two girls walk in. They know and talk to each other. One is holding plastic bowl with a covered top. They put oatmeal in these at the breakfast place downstairs. I just stand to the side.
Girl 1: “Oooh. you got breakfast.”
Girl 2: “yeah”
G1: “What kind of oatmeal?”
G2: “Not oatmeal.”
G2: “Oh. No. I just crammed this sucker with bacon.”
I laugh out loud… They both look at me.
Me: “That’s awesome.”
