A fish out of water

[ #19444 ]
Last night I decided I felt like having a cup of chai tea and futzing around on my laptop with my new and shiny wireless card. So, I grabbed the laptop and headed down to the local coffee shop which I had visited once before.

However, I made the mistake of coming on "music night", which meant the place was filled with folks in their late teens and early twenties. Undaunted, I got myself a big cup o' chai, fired up the laptop and listened to the music (which wasn't bad).

The only bad thing was that it was clear I was being gawked at, like some kind of zoo animal, because I wasn't in the "young, hip, pseudo-intellectual" crowd. There was one rather large and tattoo'ed individual who looked like he wanted to kick my ass just for being over 30. It wasn't very comfortable.

I finished my chai right about the time my battery died. It was a perfect excuse to bug out. Anyway, I felt pretty damned old after that.
