What you see is our kitchen very early in the morning.
For the I can’t remember how many times in the 17 years I have lived in the Dc metro area, we are in the midst of another prolonged summer power outage.
So only boil water for coffee this morning on the porta-burner; don’t dare open the fridge door now.
No matter, figured I’d go to the Panera at Rosslyn as they are open at 5:30 am for breakfast and coffee. Except for the people who run it, opening at 5:30 means later than 5:30 and even then, I was told breakfast wasn’t available yet but if I wished to wait… I didn’t wish to wait. Panera will hear from me later.
So board Metro to head for a Evil Empire store (Starbucks) near the worksite, the metro train I am on sits and sits at Foggy Bottom due to a broken down train ahead……
Get to the Starbucks, get prompt service, figure I’d give the clerk exact change… she gives me a funny look at tell me one of the coins I gave her isn’t a quarter…. its a quarter, but a Canadian quarter that has snuck into my pocket of change….. Sheech and its only 20 after 6 in the morning!
