Q. What is Dave’s favorite part about going to Starbucks in the morning.
A. Dave enjoys overhearing snippets of other conversations. Right now, he’s listening to other people speculate about the settings of the White House thermostat. “I hear Obama likes it toasty,” one guy said. “Oh, I can totally see that,” another guy agreed. “I saw a picture of him in the Oval Office, and he’s not wearing a suit jacket.”
