Everyone has a morning routine. Mine is:
– no talking
Unfortunately there are those with a different morning routine to the above. I met one such person today who was ordering an orange juice (from Starbucks) and talking to the barrista about not-coffee. Confused , I listened to their conversation closely…hoping to make them feel awkward enough to stop so that I could get my order in (tall, skinny, de-caf latte).
It didn’t work.
So I listened to a conversation about ice-rinks in London and where to find them. I’ve only ever ice-skated once and almost immediately knew it was not for me.
Watching people ice-skate however, fits me perfectly. And I don’t mean the professionals. I mean those who also don’t know how to ice-skate, but keep persevering. Those are the ones to watch; legs twisting, arms flailing, fingers gripping…
Here are the best places to see this:
The Natural History Museum
Tower of London
Hopefully this will have helped make somebody’s coffee order go quicker.
