Job interviews at Starbucks. "Thank you for meeting us! You brought your portfolio?" They move to a corner to talk privately.

Woman academic in pony tail and reading glasses, typing. Legal pad, laptop, wrapt attention, revising her manuscript.

Your author, cafe voyeur, writing sketches, texting the charmingly inappropriate 19-year-old who reached out on OkC. Outside there's rain but it's sunny right here.
