One more little observation for the day. I was wondering around the coffee shop and noticed something a bit strange.

Even coffee shops have their share of sad drunks.

Now, I don't think these guys are actually drunk. They seem to have taken on all of the characteristics of an alcoholic. They sit, hunched over there coffee or coffee-like beverage, staring off into space with a strange and lost look in their eyes. There's this strange haze, induced by that fix, the fix of caffeine.

The eyes seem to betray a look of longing. Looking for a past, full of happier times and populated with the people yet to be harmed by this awful addiction. Lonely, they drown themselves in hot, tasty, coffee goodness.
