Wa-wa makes a pretty nice cup of hot black stuff for when you’re on the go – and of course, you can grab your paper, your lunch for later, and fill your gas tank at the same time. I like to mix their powdered cappuccino (it’s too sweet to be the “real” stuff) with some rich, dark roast coffee. MMMMM.
After about an hour I said “Are you sure people actually do this??” I got the typical “MOM! Trust me!” I sighed and glared up the street at the darkened interior of Starbucks, dreaming of a triple shot latte, muttering something about how the *@#*#@* coffee shop could have stayed open. I read our excuse for a local newspaper for the second time, actually opened junk mail normally destined for the trash can unopened, took my shoes off, polished the stereo and dash, and imagined once more I could smell fresh coffee.
