I’m starting a new routine now that I’m back home. I’m getting a shave with every haircut, and after that, I’m going next door to The Human Bean, and having a large machiatto. Somehow it puts a huge smile on my face, and the whole experience only costs $36 including tips. Not too shabby for a treat once a month. I didn’t even know what a machiatto was until Christmas when I was waiting for the line at the barbershop to dwindle. I had to pee, so I went next door to the coffee shop to use their washroom, but me being me, I had to buy something when I was done, so I got a short espresso and slurped it back all quick like. It was a delicious espresso, and I didn’t even put any sugar in it like you should according to Brando. Don’t mind the subtitles.
I love that movie. I like the way Brando pokes fun at himself, and really has fun with the Don Corleone character. After my haircut was finished to perfection, I went back to that coffee shop and decided to try a fancy coffee. It was delicious. I’m not a coffee drinker by nature, but sometimes I do enjoy one if it’s flavoured. This was one of those times. I was hooked, and when I went to John’s Barbershop for a shave and a trim yesterday, I immediately grabbed a machiatto for myself, and one for Mrs. Birdman. She thought hers was pretty good too, and now there’s one more thing that we can enjoy together. I kinda felt weird ordering them though; it kept making me think of Zoolander, and I wanted to yell “Orange mocha frappucino”. For those of you that were too high through the past 10 or so years to see the movie, enjoy.
That movie is so damn funny, I almost passed out from laughing the first time I saw it. Anyhow, if you want a great men’s haircut and a wickedly close shave go to John’s Barbershop on King St. in Cobourg Ontario, and right next door, at 80 King St. W, is The Human Bean. Both excellent local businesses, and worth checking out if you are in the area.
That’s about it for me. I know it’s a short one, but I had a long day, and we’re freshly cleaned and ready for some cocooning. On a good note, I started reading Farmer Boy for T, and she seems to like it. I’m trying to get them into classic literature, and I figure that Laura Ingalls Wilder is a good place to start. After we finish the series, maybe we’ll try Lucy Maud Montgomery. Everything can’t be about these wimpy kid’s diaries and Monster High. Any other suggestions for young girls between 8-10 years old? I don’t remember what girls read when I was that age. Judy Blume? I might try them on Nancy Drew as well, but I had better not bite off more than I can chew.
Now won’t you stay, just a little bit longer,
P.S. Oh yeah, get your questions for Therapy Thursday in by today, if you want it to go in for tomorrow.
