Yep, the good ol’ coffee shop. I don’t know if there was ever a group of young people as dedicated to caffeine consumption/loitering as my generation and especially my group of friends. I started drinking coffee when I was in Grade 8 and have never looked back. I don’t know how I could consume so much caffeine on a typical day in high school or why, as a result of that coffee, I am not permanently wired. I also cannot explain how I could possibly handle my friends for such long stretches of time during our coffee sit ins. Either way, it seemingly was a good time and it sure beat doing homework! Ammirite?!
