Up or down, doesn't matter I'm not buyin it.
What amazes me is how all the coffee stands can remain floating. There are if memory serves correct six Starbucks shops and stands on one stretch of road here plus several independents nearby. As much as I love coffee I just can't see paying $3.50 or more for a cup no matter how fancy or what the barista is wearing or what she's not wearing.
Barbers are another matter. In a down economy people put off such things until absolutely necessary. So you might look like cousin It of the Adams family for a while. Who cares? If you wait long enough it all just might fall out from age anyway. Only to move to other parts of the body like the ears and nose. Not to forget that one eyebrow hair that grows to six inches in length and you can never quit get a grasp on it to pluck it out.
Another fun thing to do while waiting for Armageddon is reading the local police blotter. With the amount of stress of today's economy the blurbs are almost comical.
Suspicious man spotted on corner. Upon arrival police determined that the man was waiting for a bus.
Reports of loud noises coming from a house next door. Police determined that it was workers installing flooring.
Then of course there the usual amount of missing cats and dogs that are rarely found. And an abundance of suspicious characters who somehow manage to disappear when the police arrive.
So for the most part it's people hunkered down in their bunkers waiting for the economic storm to pass watching their net flix or cable shows or wasting time writing silly blog posts. Oops!
