I feel like this might come in handy one day.
This is Whit’s favorite word right now. He says it often. Many times a day. And he uses it in the right context, like I would say “Oh shit”.
Clearly, I am setting a stellar example for my boy.

We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter:
‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.
I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?”
My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.”
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks
‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’
It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.

I just saw this and thought it would be incredible to share this so maybe it could catch on whereever you may live
I just met one of the candidates who is interviewing for my old job. He was really tall and really nervous. But that wasn’t what caught my attention. That would be the “23” tatooed behind his ear, which apparently has a brother, “MJ”, behind his other ear. I work for a VERY conservative company. Case in point, my old boss had a mini stroke when our department started wearing jeans on casual Fridays last year. Something tells me this guy isn’t going to get a call back.
Trying to remember this - especially today.

All of this.
While pretending to study in Starbucks this afternoon an elderly man came out of nowhere and put a cup of coffee on my table and walked away. I didn’t notice until minutes later that a letter was attached underneath. It just happen to contain some of the best advice I’ve…
Click a few dots, and this program will try to guess your age. -
Way too excited that the quiz guessed I was 27.
It’s part of an experiment to analyze how motor control changes with age. It nearly guessed my age [ 29- my birthday is next month].
What about you? via jtotheizzoe:

This is bullshit. It guessed I was 49.
