So, I just don’t have the time to blog.  It sucks.  I am working too much.  I don’t want to quit my job, but I do want more money for doing less.  Is that so wrong?  When I do have time, I try to fill that time with golf.  I am on a quest to break 80.  Anyhoo, I don’t think I will be able to give my blog the time I think it deserves until the end of the semester, or at least until I stop caring about the quality of my work.  So, I must keep my blogs brief.  Hence, the first installment of Blog Shorts.

Anyhoo,  I set up my laptop and get to work.

This morning, the barista asked me if I was going to get some work done today as she gets my half-caf.  I think to myself, “Crap, I am being noticed.  This is the second time this person has tried to chat me up.  The next time, she might actually consider me a regular and want to ask me about my day.  What’s next?  Me knowing something about her?”

Too bad.  I liked this Starbucks.  I will miss it.  Starbucks, you are now dead to me.  RIP Starbucks… RIP.


Even my blog shorts are not that short.  I’m just sayin’ …
