A Coffee Moment

You generally won’t find me sitting around in coffee shops. It isn’t that I never patronize them, but rather I am more of a beer with a friend than a coffee with a friend.  I have also watched too many Friends episodes and can’t understand why they always got to sit on the couch–except of course that it made the most sense for TV.  It certainly changed the coffee shop landscape.

I seem to be drifting off topic.

So, while you won’t often find me in a coffee shop, it does happen. Also, perhaps due to the rarity, but most likely due to the company, whenever I do find myself talking an hour away in a coffee shop, it probably qualifies as Today’s Perfect Moment–in this case Yesterday’s Perfect Moment.

Yesterday, I carved out a moment from an afternoon that started out as a pretty humdrum morning of students taking mock exams and those students not taking it seriously enough. Perhaps things will be better today when I make them do mock oral exams and (insert sinister laugh–which I am excellent at doing) mark them severely.

Drifting off topic again.

An hour’s worth of conversation, a decent cup of coffee, and a weird street view that was mostly of construction and angry people walking by.  I hope I have painted an interesting picture for you.

Do you have a favourite coffee shop, or nook you like to drink in?

    I am a caffeine addict and have many little places I love to frequent, often…. I love to sit, people watch and sip seriously good coffee. Melbourne’s laneways have a plethora of awesome places to do this…. it’s one of the things I love most about my city 😍
