Coffee at Avellino's downtown. They make their own carmel. The best carmel latte I've ever had. Two guys studying Grudem's Systematic Theology at a table (impressed.) Great people watching. Local event posters all over the walls. Clouds painted on the blue sky ceiling. All the time in the world.
Then next door to see the fancy, totally cool, earthy clothes. We could easily spend a thousand dollars each in 30 minutes. Where's the lottery when you need it? Then to the Black Pearl. No, The Black Market. No. The Purple Elephant? Dang. I cannot retain the name for anything, but we tried on heaps of used, funky clothes. We each bought a couple things. Then to another thrift store. And another. My find of the day: an old fashioned ice cream scoop for twenty-five cents.
I'll tell you in the next post. It was amazing and shocking and perfect.
