Tuesday Morning at the Bad Bakery

  1. On Tuesdays before 11am, the bakery is populated almost entirely by Realtors and retired people.

  2. A goth family came to the bakery and there was pretty close to a 50/50 mix of staring/not staring. Most striking was the woman with the long, curly, dark red hair, and the punk/industrial look. The boots, the tank top with the red pentagram, the black lipstick, all that. The other woman had lighter red hair, pulled back, and resembled a librarian from an Edward Gorey illustration. The guy looked like a pirate. The children were, in sharp contrast, completely normal looking.

  3. Some business guy was tapping away at his PDA and his laptop (free wireless). He was making phone calls to his business buddies about how it was such a lovely day that he was going to take the day off and play some golf. He kept working.
