An Apt Comparison

Got up at home this morning and decided to do a Berkeley yuppie breakfast run. Went down Arlington to Peets for a half pound of the Holiday Blend, then went down Cedar St. to Acme Bread for baked carbohydrates, and went back up San Pablo to stop by at Trader Joe's for some half-and-half. Apparently I wasn't the only one with the idea, since the lines were practically out the door at all the places. Acme's storefront only accomodates one group at a time, with an admonishing sign on the door to keep it closed, so the line stands outside in the brisk wind. By the time I got to the front of the line, they were already out of the apple tarts and ham-and-cheese croissants that I wanted. I guess 10am is a little late for the breakfast pastries, but who eats ham-and-cheese for breakfast? It's like Communism without the perks.
