Hazards of Starbuxing

One of the fun things about summer is that I can set up curriculum planning "shop" at a local coffee company.  Of course, if you look closer at the photo below, you'll see a beach chair on the shore.  This is my *actual* summer office.  Yo necesito SPF todos los dias.  :P 30 por favor.

So, the last few days, I've spent some hours at a flavorful coffee complex.  Both times, I've happened to park next to a pair of ladies chatting . . . loudly. I'm starting to notice some themes to lady chatting.

Theme One:  Men of my Past
This lady told a sweet story about her first love.  She was a good kid, never in trouble, always home on time.  But one night, during a church retreat, she hung out with the evangelist's son, playing ping pong and talking until 4 a.m.  She was in so much trouble when Mom woke up and realized she wasn't at home.  She lost all car priveleges.  It was totally innocent, but the best love of her life.

Theme Two:  Men of my Present
This lady spent an hour (before I had to move my office inside *limits*) talking about a current flame who wanted to keep things convenient.  She said she wanted a bad boy and wasn't attracted to guys who were too easy to get, but though she was attracted to this guy, he didn't value her at all and was just looking for a convenient love.  She wanted him to work for it.  She said he was clueless and insane and no one really liked him, and then she lamented that she looked terrible the last time she ran into him. Huh?

Moral of the story?  I think it's defin. notely time for some headphones and a coffee shop playlist, no?  :)

Unintentional Eavesdropping. Needa Travel Buddy.  Iced Tea.
