    Overheard in Starbucks

    I stopped in to get a coffee this afternoon. Business was a little slow, and while standing in line I heard one barista ask the other, apropos of nothing:

    "Was Helen Keller a real person?"

    Barista #2: "What are you, stupid?"

    Barista #1, shrugs: "I just thought it was a movie."

    Me, butting in: "She wrote her autobiography. It's what the movie was based on."

    Barista #1: (nods, looks interested)
