from my table at Starbucks 08.07.09

It’s quiet here tonight.
Having a tall Strawberries & Creme.
Folksy kind of music on the sound system.
I just know the man two tables over was at Woodstock. He’s got a snazzy little Acer netbok, and a very thoughtful look on his face. His fingers move slowly and steadily across the keyboard. Perhaps he writing of days spent in a psychedelic haze.

I was born in ’61 and clearly remember the hippies. Grandma used to called them yippies. She bought me the coolest Peter Max shorts, and smiley face t-shirts. The old girl always believed you ought to be stylish.

Her wedding photo, taken in 1930, shows her with a bob haircut and short pleated skirt, looking every bit the flapper.

There’s a little girl in a stroller with a Pebbles Flintstone hair-do. So cute.

Now the quetion is what to pick up for dinner. You know a Subway sandwich and Diet Coke is more than enough, especially after 380 calories of Strawberries & Creme.

I hate menus with the calories included don’t you?

I mean seriously I do.

Everyone enjoy your Friday night.

  1. Calories are EVIL!!!!

  2. Your Subway sandwich sounds good. I love their grilled chicken with lettuce, tomato, cheese and mayo. Delicious. I haven’t had the privilege of eating at a restaurant whose menu has calories listed. I think it can be good for those watching their diet intake and bad for those who see it as a constant reminder. I agree calories are evil. Have a great night.

  3. Calories on menus and the like are just there to make us feel guilty for having something which, probably tastes the best ! I say rid me of this guilt, I’m not dumb enough to not know that a slice of carrott, has less calories than a big slice of cake, but I know which one I’d rather have with my triple shot large cappo!!!!
