Ken's Naperville Real Estate Blog : April 2008

BACK AT STARBUCKS II

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but at Starbucks, it's quite delightful.

Here I am again.  My favorite seat at my favorite Starbucks.  I have my earl grey tea.  I have a great spot for people watching.  Four male customers (plus me) are currently here.  There is a gentlemen to my left that has a laptop (Apple) that he seems to be working on intently.  Prospect quality probably low.

But it's early.

It's raining outside.  Floodwarning.  I did not ask my wife this morning, but I am sure the Nickie Indicator must be very low!  It should stay that way through the weekend with more rain and cold weather scheduled here in Naperville, Illinois until Sunday.

A man just opened his umbrella inside.  We made eye contact.  "I wouldn't do that," I say.  "I am glad you are over there." 

"It's not contagious," he reassured me.

I'm not so sure.

On the way here, I heard the old Milli Vanilli song, "Girl you know it's true."  I don't care if they were lip synching, but their tunes were catchy.  But I digress.

A woman I know from another Starbucks just walked in.  I haven't seen her in a year or so.  She remembered my name.  That's cool.  Baby picture time. 

"Yes, she is beautiful," I say.  Meg (my old friend) has to go.  Not before I get her email. 

That makes 454 emails in my database.  And counting.

It's gotten crowded in here.  Many people looking for a break from the inclement weather.

Is anyone out there?  In Naperville?  42 Jefferson.  Stop on down, and I'll buy you a cup of coffee.

It will only cost you an email address.:)

Bad way to start the week. I got on the scale at the YMCA and weighed 205. Three pounds heavier than Friday. Not to worry… After a weekend of "poisons": beer, cupcakes, junk food, etc., it is not unusual for me to gain a couple… more
