RED EYES ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!
It was a case of mistaken identity at 7th and Montana this morning as Newbie Barista Esther confused me with someone else. "Hello," she said, "You have a Red Eye, right?" "What?," I asked, taken aback, "Are my eyes bloodshot?" Veronica quickly came to my rescue. "He's not a Red Eye," she explained, pouring my coffee, "He's just a Drip." A Red Eye is apparently a combination of espresso and drip coffee which, if you ask me, is like ordering ice cream a la mode. "Sorry," said Esther, "You look just like someone who orders a Red Eye!" I would have complained, but it could always be worse. One of the Baldwin Brothers made the scene ... but no one could figure out which one he was ...!
