I've noticed thatuh, in New York,
they have a very differentway of ordering coffee
to go than theydo in California.
Do you know about this?
In California, if youorder coffee to go,
they give you yourcoffee and then
you go over to the coffeesupplementation area
and you use the variouscreams and sweetening agents
to sweeten the coffee orcream in to your liking.
Whereas in New York City, ifyou order the coffee to go,
they just give it to you.
You're not allowed totouch the dairy products.
I don't know if this isa trust problem or what.
But you have to communicate howmuch uh, cream and sugar you
want through a very complicated,uh, ritualistic code that, uh,
like a lot of other thingsin New York is foreign to me.
The first time I go and Iget my coffee I-- I-- the guy
says, do you want regular?
And I thought, as opposedto decaf, yeah, regular.
It turns out "regular" in NewYork means cream and sugar.
So-- so-- you, you, have to--I don't know how they determine
even how much-- theyjust put it in for you.
I don't know if they're psychic.
They know how much you want.
Or then I thought, wellmaybe they're highly trained
and they determine how muchcream I want by my weight
and height and you know, likemy bone structure or something.
He's a necromorph, givehim light and sweet.
Uh, which, that's how youtell them the cream thing.
It's-- is the cream nomenclatureis you tell them how you want
it by how-- what color thecoffee will turn when they put
the cream in, so-- youneed like a Benjamin
Moore paint sampler card thing.
I'm looking here forsomewhere between the Burnt
Sienna and the Ochre.
So I get my coffee andI'm walking around.
You have some street food.
I've noticed that thestreet food in New York
is very similar you know, withthe hot dogs and the pretzels
to the food that youget at the ballpark.
And then I-- then itkind of occurred to me
that walking aroundNew York City
is very similar to going toa baseball game in the sense
that it may seem like nothing'sgoing on for a long time
but pretty soon someone is goingto hit something really hard
with a bat.
