sauvignon blanc por favor
Our schedule at Northeastern is a bit strange. After our first year we go on a quarter system and rotate between classes and doing a "coop" which is an internship. This quarter, I've decided to do my coop at the SF Public Defenders. I am staying with my parents in the south bay and seeing as my car is in Boston, I will be taking the caltrain everyday. I also get dropped off at the caltrain station in Mountain View by my parents...you know, like a middle schooler. Anyways, today I arrived at the crack of dawn aka 6:45am. It was surprisingly busy and there was a coffee cart that may or may not also sell hot dogs. I will investigate that tomorrow. Now the big surprise came after work...you can drink on the caltrain! wtf. The lady in front of me sits down, takes a small plastic bottle of wine out of a grocery bag, and then pours it in a plastic cup! She then proceeds to sip and enjoy her wine while doing something on her laptop. Really?? Now that I know this, I will probably mix a cocktail or two tomorrow morning.
