Decent cup of joe

New Years Day, Starbucks in the Prudential Center B&N.

RG and I are having coffee on our usual mission of checking out the male pulchritude wandering around loose in Boston and ogling the 20 year old barrista, when a friend of RG walks in. RG waves him over to the table.

RG: How are you? We don't see each other for ages and then twice in one week.

Friend: It's because I work over here. Both times I've seen you it's been over here.

RG: So, what are you up to today, you're not working?

Friend: At the moment, I'm looking for a good cup of coffee.

Pause for a beat.

RG: So.... why are you in Starbuck's?
