Enter and scope, find one of the five tables providing privacy and an outlet. Find one, mark the territory with travel mug lid, gloves on cold days, laptop case.
Head to line, banter with staff and other customers, usually no ordering requirement, they know me.
Back to the table, sip, check table's stability, adjust. Coat off, sunglasses off, laptop out, phone out, power up, plug in, log in, connect. Check email on phone, bring out computer glasses, sip coffee, arrange table, scan business, begin.
