Welcome to the Daily Grind

I decided it was time to officially end the mourning period for my beloved Kofenya in Oxford and sample the Statesboro alternative, called The Daily Grind.  I had been here twice before, the first time I completely lost my nerve and backed out before anyone saw me; the second time I ordered a cup of coffee and muffin then, grudgingly sat at the counter, not quite convinced it was the right place for me.

Georgialand II

Things I have learned since we moved to Georgia land:

  1. Never try to hurry. There is no advantage to it and on a day like today, no one else is in a hurry either.
  2. Never leave anything I plan to touch in the car on a hot day.
  3. It is honestly not the heat, it is the humidity. 91 degrees with 34% humidity is a breath of fresh air to any temperature and 100% humidity.
  4. I need a hat.
  5. The fastest way to end a conversation is to talk. A friend may be interested in what I have to say, but the average person I encounter is not.
  6. The pancakes I order at IHOP might not be the pancakes I get.
  7. Everyone in Statesboro is nice and friendly, but sometimes that niceness is only a thin veneer over hostility
  8. Just because someone is willing to help doesn't mean they are willing to do any favors.
