MUG SHOT! The Pink Tongue

So, I had to share - May I draw your attention to the woman on the right in the photo below.

Working in one of the cafes around town, on this particular day I kept seeing flashes of pink out of the corner of my eye. Finally, when I turned, I saw a woman paying an unusual amount of attention to her espresso mug with her tongue. She licked that thing inside and out for the entire time she was there doing crosswords - at least a solid hour. Ha ha, this pic still brings a smile to my face. I love this woman.

Hmm, definitely does make you rethink reusable coffee shop mugs though huh...

MUG SHOT! An Introduction and Quote of the Day

Given I spend a lot of time, and I mean A LOT of time, in coffee shops, I have decided to integrate a component to the blog called, Mug Shots. With the aim to shed light on the life in coffee shops, these posts will include photos of rarities, unusual stories, and fragments of conversations that are entertaining when you remove the context.

Today, I begin with a discussion I heard between the cafe owner and one of his staff. I couldn't contain my laughter when I repeated this back to myself. I overheard:
"I’m running up to the Nuthouse. We have an Ethiopian but we might need a Guatemalan" 
He said this as he checked one of the carafes and left to run to the store down the street.
