My Dealer

I remember being a virgin. Not knowing the language and feeling insecure. Many times waiting for everyone to leave before I would step up to the counter and whisper " I am not sure what it is called but this is what I like."

I would go into detail as to the texture and flavor and my barista would
smile and ramble off something I swore I would remember to save my embarrassment for the next fix I needed.

Now I am one of the many who wait in line playing with my iphone tapping my nails waiting for my fix.

Some of us are dressed for work, some are just getting off work. I am dressed for the gym. The unemployed who sit on their laptops looking important sit and stare at their screens.

I don't care...I just want my shameless fix....today!

Your description make me smile. I remember when I was a virgin too, but like you I have become a veteran now.

That is funny. I used to despair of finding anything I actually liked... and now i'm hooked too.

One thing I liked when I went to New York was that when I requested a grande coffee they corrected me with an 'uh, a medium?' It's taken a while in the UK for the baristas to accept it's ok to say normal medium or large.

Just in Starbucks. Places like Costa use normal medium or large.

But then my hatred for Starbucks burns hotter than a thousand suns.

Brilliant. I've always been a resolute tea drinker but going out with an Italian for a year has caused me to need my dirty fix.

I love the idea, as well as the throw-away that it's the unemployed with laptops sitting around too

great idea - as is the throw-away statement that the guys with laptops are unemployed
