Some days being a barista is a fun and more or less easy job. Take some orders, brew some coffee, steam some milk. And then some days you're under-staffed, trying to be in five places at once: register, making food, making coffee, doing dishes and taking out the overflowing garbage all while trying not to scald yourself with burning hot coffee shots or pans. Today was the latter sort.
After almost eight hours on my feet and only the food I could scarf down while loading the dish sanitizer in my tummy, all I can say is "thank goodness for the cupcakes" which one of my lovely co-workers brought in today.
I'm sorry it didn't last long enough to take a picture. It was very cute.
