Now that I’m not at the Prospect offices, I tend to spend my days drifting from one WiFi enabled coffee place to another in search of variety, internet access, and caffeine. Today, I’ve been to three different spots — two independent outlets and one Starbucks — that were suffering coffee cup shortages. Two that didn’t have cups for large iced coffees and one that was missing medium-sized hot cups. What’s the deal? Is there some regional cup-shipment emergency? Can we blame al-Qaeda for this turn of events? I demand action!
