It’s been raining all afternoon today. I am reminded of that one evening years ago when a friend and I got stranded late at night in Starbucks . The skies were clear and there was nary a hint that the weather was going to change any time soon. Then at around 10pm, rain came as if someone suddenly turned the switch on — pelting the sidewalks with huge blobs that were shimmering under the streetlamps.
The cafe was right beside the apartment so I didn’t think bringing an umbrella was necessary. My phone and computer battery were drained. And I didn’t have any of the chargers in my bag.
Oh, I don’t even drink coffee. (the croissants are always good, though!)
The rain didn’t look like it was going to abate within minutes. And I started to get a bit restless having been in the cafe hours earlier for a meeting.
What to do?
I approached the manager, asked for their markers and asked for permission to work on their Coffee Of The Week board
