The other day at lunch the talk got around to "coffee houses" that we used to hang out at when we were teenagers. I'm over 20 so this was before the days of Starbucks. The one I liked to go to wasn't like the coffee houses of today.
It was dark. It was moody. It was in a "bad part of town".
The funny thing is that when I went there I never drank coffee. I think I drank tea a few times. I wasn't into the whole hot caffinated drink phase yet.
But it was cool to hang out and people watch. EMO people before "EMO" was a thing. Druggies. Preps. Then us. I have no idea what we were. My friend was super smart, beautiful, blonde, and exploring. Me, not so much.
I remember on one occassion talking to these guys, there must have been like 4 of them, and then going to their house boat. My friend ended up making out with one of them under a blanket. I'm pretty sure there was weed but I'm pretty sure I didn't smoke it. I'm pretty sure I'm lucky we didn't get raped, murdered and thrown into the river.
Definitely the young and dumb days.Pin It
