Life is about stealing moments to get actual work done while touting the kids to and fro. Check email while cheering at the soccer game. Pay a bill while your son does snap front kicks at Tae Kwon Do. It’s all a day in the life of a parent.
So you finally get to set down your booty down at a table and work on the computer…. the joy! And free wi-fi at Starbucks? Yes, please!
But here’s the secret…. everyone else is on the wi-fi system, sucking up every last drop of byte carried through the air, leaving you with a computer than runs as fast as the original Macintosh computer.
Watch the kaleidoscope wheel turn and turn and turn. But no progress is made. It’s rather hypnotic, putting you into a trance. Perhaps that’s the point. Starbucks is going to lull us into a sleepy purple haze that will only be cured by a double hit of espresso. Oh, you are a devious one, Starbucks. Devious indeed.
MOUTH OFF: Are you a Starbucks addict or hater? Tell us the wildest story that happened to you while at Starbucks.
