Over the weekend Liam and I were having coffee at Starbucks. Say what you will about Starbucks but I'm addicted to their Clover® Brewing System and apparently if you order one of their outrageously expensive coffees, and it takes too long because they're cleaning the machine, they'll comp it. Score.
Liam and I were killing time entertaining the Healdsburg locals. He's two, cute, and super-crazy social. He was doing the rounds with his usual routine of running up to strangers to say 'hi', then acting shy and running away. The effect of which was instantaneous. Most of the clientele that day walked in with a severe case of the holiday blues and left with a new appreciation for life. Just like 'It's a Wonderful Life' but without all the back story and parallel dimension stuff. He should get corporate sponsorship from the Starbucks people. Or at least free chocolate milk. One lady even had to say "What a darling little girl! Oh, and what a fun age!! This will probably be the first year she really gets it!" Okay yes he's darling, yes he needs a haircut, and no...he doesn't get it.
