Lately I've been taking the laptop to Starbucks to do some work so that I can be out of the house more. I know, right? Isn't the point of working from home to you know, be at home? But I really like my twice a week visit to Starbucks. Besides that fact that it smells really good in here, the new berry chai's are super delicious.
Plus, I enjoy the people watching. Like, the other day I was chatting with Wilna on the webcam. And this older man kept turning to look at me curiously. I think he was probably confused as to why I was sitting in Starbucks talking to my cute pink laptop.
Oh, and then there was this guy that sat down next to me with his friend. He wanted to give his friend his passcode to get on the internet. He looked at me sort of suspiciously, as though this was information that I desperately desired and would surely steal. Then he proceeded to slowly inform his friend of the passcode numbers. In french. Which certainly was very clever of him. I would definitely not be able to figure that out. Except for those 6 years of french I took. Probably if you want to tell someone your password in another language, make it like Gaelic. Who are you going meet at Starbucks that knows Gaelic, that's my thought. Although really, he could have used pig latin. I never mastered pig latin.
The guy sitting next to me is studying to become a doctor. I know because he dropped this massive textbook on my purse and then apologized profusely. I noticed that the book had a lot of drawings of cut up bodies in it, so naturally I asked him what he was reading. I mean, you have to make sure people are serial killers in this day and age, you know? That's how I found out he is studying to be a doctor. So then I asked him what might be wrong with Izzie on Grey's Anatomy. Because, you know, I didn't see last night's episode and so I thought I'd see if he knew what disease could make her see dead people. But he just looked at me sort of funny and said he didn't know what I was talking about. Which means he probably is a serial killer, because who doesn't watch Grey's Anatomy?
Actually, now that I think about it, all of those people were giving me weird looks. That's disturbing. I wonder if it's my new bangs.
