Brrrrrrr. Don’t even try to tell me you haven’t noticed how cold it is- even if you grew up in Minnesota, this qualifies as cold! Remember the scene in ‘A Christmas Story’, where the little brother is all bundled up in his snow suit? Yeah, that’s me. Tip me over and I’ll just lay there kicking and waving my arms.
I carry a hot cup of tea with me at all times, as a hand warmer. In case you are wondering, why yes- we do have tea and all manner of hot drinks at The Market! Hot cocoa is a classic of course, but that won’t do for all you coffee drinkers out there. The language of coffee aficionados is complete babble to me- might as well be an obscure dialect of Aborigine. I catch a word here & there, but the context confuses me. Luckily for you, I’m not the person making all those fancy coffee drinks at the market. The folks who take your order know exactly what you want. The aromas are inviting, and I always love to see the contented expression after the first sip. If you’re an early bird, Nancy begins her day in the wee hours of the morning and she’s an expert Barista. If you see the light on, even though it may be 4am, she’ll concoct your favorite coffee drink! Unlike the infamous bikini Barista’s of Seattle, clothing is not ‘optional’ at The Market!
