The coffee shop where I used to surreptitiously draw people waiting for their lattes is open again! Hallelujah. Here’s one of this AM’s customers.
Isn’t she lovely?
Of course, girls need their coffee too…
The girl on the left really did look like some kind of bizarre living update of an Egyptian wall painting — all dramatic angles (and, let’s just say it — a great bag). She seemed sort of miserable, perhaps because her cappuccino took six hours to make. The one on the right was her polar opposite: low maintenance and suspiciously happy. Based on mood assessment and taking into consideration the latest polling data, I’ll put Ms. Red Bag in the conservative camp; Lil’ Miss Sunshine with the Dems.
Thus concludes this rip-roaring week of Dudes in Line. Check back tomorrow for the next installment of Turning of the Worm: The Book of Bones and an announcement about the next Thing of the Week!
A few notes on this particular Dude in Line:
First of all, this guy was incredibly tall. And I am used to tall men (hi, Dad!). His height was staggering.
Second: He was wearing the longest tie I’ve ever seen. Can you buy ties in the Big & Tall stores? It was seriously like 5 feet of of blinding blue silk. The blue was intense, perhaps only because of the tie’s sheer length. Then he takes out his cellphone: it’s the exact same color blue. So it’s apparently his signature color. Diagnosis: Democrat.
Someone’d better tell the Palin campaign (because apparently she’s gone rogue) that they should really look into being a little more subtle about how they dress their spies…
I mean, this guy was just rubbing our commie faces in it.
Greetings from a coffee shop somewhere in Communist Country! Unless you fell and hit your head recently (in which case, I’m sorry — get well soon!) you know that Virginia is a swing state, which means it’s neither red nor blue, but a really lovely shade of lavender. This week I’ll be bringing you my own brand of reportage: Taking the pulse of this squirrelly populace by drawing them while they’re waiting for their espresso drinks.
Here’s today’s feature:
Um, yeah. If this guy isn’t planning on voting for Obama I’m eating my hat — hell, I’ll eat all of my hats. This is no small feat as I recently realized I have an embarrassing amount.
Tomorrow, a things get interesting when a representative from the Great [Really] Northwest orders a latte.
