Coffee Adventures

The other day my cousin was complaining that he never gets to go to the coffee shop with me and Cellular Dodo so I said "well let's go" so we walked down and he had never been before, he was so confused! We walk in and I'm standing in line, like a normal person, and he's just wandering aimlessly so I lean over and grab him by the collar of his T-shirt and pull him back in front of me and say "stay". Eventually it's our turn to order, so I tell the lady what I want and then there was a pause and I say "I don't know what he wants" clearly meaning my little cousin. He leans over to me and whispers "what kind of smoothies do they have?" so I read him the list off the menu (which was on the wall) and he goes "oh." and then looks at his feet, silent. I look at the girl, then at him, then I lean over to him and half-whisper "this is the part when you order". So he orders and we move over to where we wait for our drinks. He was like taking a little wooden coffee stirrer and he's putting it in his mouth and then it broke in half. Finally his drink comes and I have to guide him through the process of grabbing it and getting a straw. So I'm waiting for mine and out of no where he goes "Oh my god!" and I'm like "what?" and he says "I have that same toaster!". The counter behind us had the straws, and stirrers, and like sugar, and apparently a toaster. He was marveling at it as if it was some revalation that he had the same toaster. I'm just like "that's lovely" and he goes "That's so weird, I have that exact same toaster". I don't know if any of you are familiar with Roosterteeth, but

Our conversation about the toaster was extremely similar to Chris and Bernie's conversation about the microwave. (in case you couldn't figure it out on your own, he's Chris)
