Two girls meet at a coffee shop

Lucy and I met at Caribou for coffee last night. We were supposed to be doing homework. I did a bit. She did a bit.

And still we managed to fit in a good deal of chatting. Here, my dear readers, is just a sampling of our eccentric and random topics of conversation.

Labor unions
The meaning of dreams, particularly dreams about babies
My ill-fated paper
Colleen’s adventures in online dating (including 20 minutes of attempting to locate her on and Yahoo! Personals)
Lucy and Chet’s potential trip to Israel
Caribou’s Pumpkin Pie Latte versus Starbucks’ Pumpkin Pie Latte
The felted bag of a girl sitting at the table across from ours
Alexa’s financial downturn
Lucy’s take on her homework: “I think what I’m writing I’m making up, but I really like it. It sounds really professional”
Roth IRAs
April acting like a spoiled, rotten, nasty little bitch and ditching us for our Thanksgiving last weekend because we wouldn’t have dinner at the time she wanted
Proprietors of small stores in vacation towns
The appropriateness of dancing to The Girls’ theme song without The Girls present
Fried tomatoes served at a local restaurant that closed at least five years ago
MLA versus APA style
Alexa “bumping uglies” with someone new
Dr. Susan Wicklund’s book This Common Secret: My Journey as an Abortion Doctor
Panera Bread
Lucy’s (very minor) pregnancy scare
Our impending trip to Chicago
Kickboxing class
April’s dad and how important he is or is not within the Chrysler corporation
The song The Girls should sing the next time we’re faced with the opportunity to sing karaoke
My sister
The art of determining that what you’re writing makes no sense
Thanksgiving dinner of last week
Whether lambs are cute, not cute or neutral

Disclaimer: no, we really are two intelligent, educated women. I haven’t been putting up a front all this time. Seriously.

No recapping of Grey's Anatomy??? I would have thought that could make the list...

Caribou has migrated (haha) to Michigan? Niiiiice. I didn't know they had a Pumpkin Pie Latte. I definitely like pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks. What's the verdict on Caribou's version? I'll need to get one the next time I go.

Lucy does not watch Grey's. Isn't that crazy?

I didn't know that Caribou was a Wisconsin company. But, bad news, their Pumpkin Pie Latte is now out of season. DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE? No. But, as of November 1, it is gone. Wacky.
