OK, tell me if there is something wrong with this picture. A guy on a motorcycle drives onto the sidewalk outside the coffeehouse – he’s riding a Harley-Davidson, wearing a Nazi SS helmet, and a skull mask to protect his face from the wind. Here’s the catch: He just walked out of the coffeehouse with an iced drink with drizzled chocolate and wiped cream on top. I’m of the school that the drink tells much about a person, much more than any mode of transportation. And an iced beverage with drizzled chocolate and whipped cream on top simply says sooo much and pretty much blots out the whole biker image. He and his biker pals probably sit around knitting, sipping chardonnay, and listening to Michael Buble. … But don’t tell him I said that.
