A few summers ago as we were relaxing at a Swedish “beach,” a man came around wearing a white backpack with black spots and a hose attached. He was “THE COFFEE COW.” His special backpack was full of coffee and he would fill you up right there on the beach for a low price. My husband thought this was the most genius idea he had ever seen.
However, you have to understand that:
1. Swedes are crazy about coffee.
2. For some reason, coffee at the “beach” just works here.
The reason this is on my mind is because I saw a girl yesterday morning doing the same thing at the subway station. Now THAT’s a genius idea! In my opinion, it fits better than at the beach.
Coffee Cow wouldn’t go over well on Gulf Coast beaches where I come from.
But a Margarita Cow? Now you’re talking.
I’ve been having to do some food research lately for work and I came across this article on Business Insider about Taco Bell’s new “Low-end menu.”
“Taco Bell’s new “low end” menu release.
Taco Bell released a menu featuring a bunch of items for $1. At a time when McDonald’s and Wendy’s value menus are featuring more expensive items, affordability will help Taco Bell stand out. ”
So, Taco Bell was previously too expensive? Yeah, that 99 cent burrito I was getting was putting me in the poor house.
C’mon people! Taco Bell barely qualifies as food. It doesn’t need to be more affordable. It needs to have a complete overhaul or possibly be shut down for being hazardous to human heath!
I’m starting my own company to translate documents from Swedish to English. (send me your business — now that’s enough for the commercial). So I went down to my favorite place – the unemployment office – to discuss programs about getting support during the start-up phase. The response from the woman I talked to:
“Well, it would be easier to just get a job and start your company on the side.”
Wow! Get a job?! What a unique idea! I’ll just go do that real quick. What on earth have I been doing for the past 6 months anyway? I should have thought about this whole “get a job” thing!
Thanks again unemployment office. Your logic fails my goals, but at least it gives me lots of good writing material.
