Barista asleep or dead?

By weeklyvolcano on February 16, 2007

A minute ago, after numerous honks at the drive-up window at Perky's, Tacoma's other coffee pot, the barista never arose from her slumped position in front of her espresso machine.  I drove away from the joint on Bridgeport Way Southwest wondering if she was asleep or dead.

I feel guilty.  Please someone check on her. â€" Jessica Corey-Butler
