Coffee Is My Best Friend – by Marie Pollnow


Coffee is my best friend.  I love coffee.  In fact I love her so much that I have worked in several coffee shops. I worked at Gloria Jean’s at Southgate mall (now closed.)  That was my first time working at a coffee shop that is.  Then I worked at Starbucks. This was when Starbucks was just coming out. I was straight hustling.  I had just moved to Jersey City. (uh yah) I worked at the Starbucks at Hoboken. That’s kind of crazy since my Dad told me a lot of mob stories related to Hoboken. Then I worked at Starbucks in West Allis when I moved back to Wisconsin, sigh.  It was the first drive in which I worked because I was fast. So, that’s my love affair of coffee gone astray at minimum wage most of the time. Coffee has been my best friend for a long time. She was never late, never stabbed me in the back or talked about me. On the contrary she was on time, often woke me up and smelled phenomenal. She sparked my “endorphins” to keep me happy.

If you go back a few hundred years many people did not know how to read, they did not spend much of their life within the field of knowledge. Reading, reflecting, thinking, learning facts etc. was a rare activity for the few.
People could not conduct their own life as we can today. They were born with limited possibilities of education with no hope of change of social position or class. Today people in the modern world can learn and achieve almost anything. We have entered into a state of increased autonomy or ability to conduct and create our own life.
