During the last two weeks, I’ve been putting in a lot of hours at Zocalo cafe. I have a major writing deadline tomorrow, and Zocalo is the perfect place for me to work. The tables are generously sized, there are lots of plugs for my laptop (which, incidentally, has a terrible battery), and the staff is very friendly. Although I’ve been putting in long days of writing and editing, I’ve also been getting in my share of people watching. One of the reasons I like working at a cafe is because it’s a lot less isolating than working at home. I’m never the only person working, and I like being surrounded by other telecommuters. This guy was one of them. I was intrigued by his hair and by the fact that he was wearing an item that you rarely see in the 21st century, the short-sleeved dress shirt.
