Sitz im Leben, Spring Street

This morning the water on the East River was glassy like Hood Canal at dawn. I ordered an espresso, noting that the coffee shop guy always tells me he pulls "ristretto." I ordered a single accordingly. Thinking this may not be quite enough caffeine for the amount of work I need to accomplish today, I also ordered an iced coffee. This was folly.

A number of years ago, in San Francisco, Tommy and I decided to not drink any alcohol at the parties one night. Instead we ordered multiple shots of espresso at Starbucks.
I ended up puking anyhow.
