Is it weird that my entire life there has always been something endlessly appealing about being a bartender or barista? Sometime I want to quit my fantastic corporate work in marketing and just go back to the basics. There’s something about brewing coffee, mixing drinks, joking around with strangers, and being stressed out to all hell trying to keep up with everyone’s orders (all while making pennies) that makes me feel like I’ve entered Mecca. It’s almost orgasmic: brew the coffee…mmmmmmm…froth the milk….oh god….shake the ice, vodka, tequila, and lemon juice….aaaaaaaaaaaagh!!
Yep, that one has to be weird.
