Coffeehouse observation No. 69

I nearly forgot. At Exotic Java earlier, I overheard an animated, yet friendly, conversation about whether the coconut is a nut or a fruit. Fortunately, there is WiFi at Exotic Java and the participants were able to learn that a coconut is a fruit. A drupe, to be most accurate.

Coffeehouse observation No. 68

Overheard in Exotic Java today that it is located in what used to be a much larger tattoo parlor. The parlor is still there, next door. Also, I noticed that the mural – the one behind the counter with the image of a girl in Daisy Dukes and hot pink hair on a swing hanging from a tree – also has an image of a wizard. The word “tattoos” is woven several times in his long, white beard.

Also, the “Red Eye” is a nice pick-me-up.
