Kids are in bed, coffee is made, time for a little bonding time between me and my keyboard. I am a firm believer in learning. You should learn something new every day, whether you want to or not. If you stop learning, you might as well stop breathing. This is what I learned today….
1.) After 34 years on this planet people’s complete lack of common can still surpise me. This afternoon my boss sprang for coffee, on the condition that I go out to get it. Fine by me. I get to Timmies (for you non-Canadians that’s Tim Horton’s the Caffeine Church of Canada), walk up to the counter and place my order for FIVE large coffees to go. Now here I must point out I am a normally built humanoid, two arms, to hands, no extra appendages. The overly cheery cashier makes my coffees, takes my cash, looks me right in the eyes and says “Would you like a tray for those?”, to which I promptly reply “No, thanks. I juggle”. She got that deer in the headlight look I’m so fond of and just stood there. I waited almost a full minute before letting her off the hook with “As a matter of fact I think I will take a tray thank you.”
