happy blizzardy valentime's day

notes from my post at the epicenter of middle street:

view: the snow is blowing sideways outside! inside, three wi-fi users stare at their screens. a happy couple in silly hats sit at a cafe table. people in scary ski masks walk down the hall covered in snow.

fancy drink of the day (not selected by me, just a random sample): large almond joy (large mocha with almond and coconut syrups).

boring drink of the day: large casco bay blend coffee.

rudest customer award: "large mocha." (slaps a $10 on the counter) "and put a sugar in it."

nicest customer award: "i could have large hot chocolate, please?" in an eastern european/russian accent. when she left, she said, "have good night!"

i celebrate valentine's day by: being extra nice to that passive-aggessive "cookie" customer m knows so well; borrowing one of diane's black plastic heart rings for the day; playing nancy wilson/cannonball adderly over and over again.

Happy Valentine's Day, Lisette! I'm celebrating by making spaghetti and Nate's meatballs, which I would not even know about were it not for you!
