Stop and Smell the Beans

My friend and I stopped by Central Market today after lunch to get some bread and butter for the office. While we were walking through the store, I couldn't help but notice all of the unique offerings that were literally staring at me from the crammed shelf space. Finding items like Frostie sodas and U-bet flavored syrups always makes me happy. Maybe it's because seeing those offerings reaffirms the fact that there's always room for the "little guy."

Anyways, as we were walking toward the bread section, my nose caught scent of coffee beans in whole-bean format. While I don't drink coffee (you can read why here), I absolutely love the smell of coffee beans. And today one bean, in particular, drew me in for the sniff -- a Texas pecan blend. Incredible smell!

So there I was, haunched over the barrel of beans with my head inside and my nose within prime smelling distance of 6 inches or less, when my friend alerts me to the fact that I look rather silly. Oh really? Oh well.
