Yes it has been awhile. Yes I no longer have internet connection in my apartment...therefore blogger has become a moment in history. Yet I am coming back for a short visit to tell a story or maybe two, and possibly convince you and myself that this will occur again sooner rather than later.
This morning I woke up at 6 am, partially awake I sat in my bed waiting for my roommate to get out of the bathroom (she usually is up and out by 6:30 to open at the coffeehouse, me I am up at 8 or 9 because I close the shop quite frequently). Once I step out of my room she looked at me and said "wow you seem quite perky today!" In shock I said "Really, I don't feel that awake..how are you...maybe I am awake... I do this in the morning...i'm chatty I guess...hmm...maybe I should stop talking...o i 'm getting in the shower...nice to see you ........"
The reason why I awoke so early is to meet a Biology Professor at the shop to talk about my Seattle trip. One this was supposed to happen in the summer and never did and two we rarely talked about my trip and chatted for an hour and a half about life, education, family, cities, and ect ect.. I sat with an americano, a raspberry muffin , and great conversation. Nancy warned Bob [the biology prof] that morning before I came in. She apparently told him " Bob, I have to warn you, Al is awake but she is extremely chatty!"
This is why I love this shop sometimes. The conversations that ensue and the ability to sit with a prof and talk about life. I think at such a major university town this would not have happened as easily. And for some reason I still have energy running through me; which is odd because I went to bed at 2:00 am. Weird.
Oh the smells of coffee and roasting in the morning. This is a lovely way to start the day as I sit in the shop and type on this machine. Good times.
