Coffee Log, Year 2, Day 296


Coffee: Americano, Caribou Coffee

I got the car washed but it didn’t do much. There are black spots from last spring where the pollen stuck. I didn’t want a white car but that’s all they had for me. You can choose, but choices aren’t perfect. It was a drive-through wash, automatic, maybe the stains will go away with a bit of elbow grease.

Later, at the Wal-Mart, I was buying a desk-fan. I couldn’t find it and the girl who worked there couldn’t either. She asked a manager, who knew. I bought it but don’t know if it works yet. I need it for my desk in the new office, the one they’ve got me studying at. The office is a sauna. There’s a pretty window, though, on a technical college parking lot, with lots of clean cars.

Told you. Everything sounds better in the car wash.

  1. I love Caribou. Last time I was in Denver, I grabbed a bunch of bags from the little shop on 16th Street and brought them to China. Helps keeps me sane here. When the coffee runs out, it’s time to go back to the USA!


      1. Coffee in China is always a roll of the dice, unless it’s from Starbucks… but Starbucks gets old in a hurry. That’s why I don’t mind doing the morning grind. My coffee always tastes a little better when I put a touch of elbow grease into every cup!
