I used to watch "Friends" and wonder two things. Why does nobody in NYC lock there doors and who practically lives in a coffee shop?
I think I understand the latter a bit more now. Since coming out to the Midwest farmland of America there's not a lot to do. Except drink. And seeing as it wouldn't be appropriate to turn up to work with the kids of America (woah-oh) in a less than sober state coffee is the beverage of choice.
There's two really good coffee shops near to where I squat, I mean live. One is two minutes away. The other is twenty five minutes away. You know, for the days I want to go for a drive in a straight line.
Right now I'm in the one quite far away. There's a guy playing guitar and he's pretty good but it's taking all my self control to not ask for a go on his axe. I'm even throwing a few quiet harmonies in even though I don't know his songs. I just get a look every now and again that I'm taking to mean "dude, stop". Oh well, I don't care.
Coffee shops are fun.
But I still don't get why people don't lock their apartment doors in NYC.
