Quiet? What A Riot!

The weather in my neck of the woods is quite beautiful this evening. David decided to attend tonight's Indians game, and I decided to avoid all things downtown and visit the local coffee shop for quiet Frankie time.

Fat chance.

En route I was offered different purchases by different people. Not street vendors, not salespeople outside of shops, but regular pedestrians walking in the opposite direction. The items I politely declined to purchase:
  • a half eaten pizza, asking price: $1.00
  • Five pounds of frozen pork, asking price: $5.00
  • a young man's services for the evening, asking price: $100.00
I arrived at Gypsy to find screaming children. I've never encountered screaming children in a coffee house. Isn't there some sort of Starbucks-enforced code of ethics that doesn't permit the presence of children under the age of eighteen? There should be.

Wednesday evening David and I are attending a Kahlua tasting in the RainForest at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.

If I happen to encounter a noisy bunch of children there, I swear I'm going to pass out Kahlua disguised as chocolate milk.

    Gypsy is fairly close to me as well, but I've never been.

    And anyone asking for less than $350 for a night is so bargain bin. Trash.

    Have fun at the K-tasting. That sounds like fun. I can't imagine there being a lot of kids at something like that, but you never know. The future Parises and Lindsays could be in the crowd.
