I have been listening to podcasts in my early morning walks around the house with my back thing. One of my favorites (along with This American Life—any episode from any time) is Alec Baldwin's Here's the Thing. This interview with Paula Pell is so dang funny and interesting to me. Everyone he interviews is fascinating. I think Brian Williams just sounds like the niceset guy ever. There's also this video thing Jerry Seinfeld has Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Which is just what it sounds like. My brother told me about it. The one with Alec Balwid is really funny. It's the only one I've seen, actually. I'm saving them. But come on Jerry, where's the funny women? They drink coffee!
And why is there not a delivery espresso truck in existence? I think this is a great idea. Like for right now, at 6:31 am. They could drive up and make it to order. I know the average sale price wouldn't be enough to offset the gas. But I can still dream. Maybe it could be like an ice cream truck. It could just cruise around playing some cool early morning music. (Christopher Cross.) I could have a standing order, like 3 times a week they could come by between 6-8am. I could have a tab. And it's Portland, so it wouldn't be from a truck, it would be from a bike. Wait. Does this exist? I think it might. If it gets weird, it probably already exists here. I need to do some research. But now that I think of it, there would need to be plumbing, right? And electrical. Would a Vanagon work for this? Man. I know some people can make their espresso drinks at home, but a hardcore 5oz dry cappuccino requires tools I just don't have.
