Do They Just Know Their Customers?
There is a combination convenience store/lunch counter in the courtyard near my work. It's a pretty large store, maybe 1.5 times the size of a typical 7-11. In addition to their sandwich counter, they have everything from cereal (a wide variety, including Go Lean for me) to canned veggies, baked goods to fresh fruit. They have an aisle devoted to hygiene/personal care, a huge selection of imported and good chocolates, and, well, pretty much everything else.
In the store, they have three signs that hang from the ceiling to let you know where to find certain products. They are:
Brad is not in any danger of being the coolest guy in the room. He is prone to strange observations, has an affinity for scotch, and is still figuring out what to be when he grows up.
Lorelei makes software and internet things that mostly work. Manipulation of behavior is fascinating. She's a bit of a spaz and easily distracted. She likes the domestic arts, boxing and reading stuff.
