The obsession continues…as does the coffee shop’s good humour

As I got ready to leave for an ALA meeting in Chicago this morning, I first fought my way across a street choked with dump trucks wherever the pit isn’t.  Full on digging continues….and continues…and continues…

South Park, at 8:15 this morning

On the bright side, the most local coffee shop, Uncommon Grounds, has decided to incorporate the scene into their daily quiz.  The quiz generally works like this: at the counter, a handwritten question–environmental science, geography, famous people, etc.–is taped, with four tip coffee cups beneath it, each cup offering a different answer.  You tip in the cup of your selection of right answer and the next day the true correct answer is posted on another hand written note next to the muffins.  Usually the questions are university level and pretty interesting but today they have outdone themselves:

“When will the construction on South Park be completed?”

And all four cups sport the same possible answer: “Never.”
