Just in case that Haas job doesn’t work out….
It’s an old joke between my hubby and me. It goes back to our first months of dating. At that time, I was also on my first months at Haas. UC Berkeley classified me as being “on probation.” That joke came up anytime I felt insecure with my job (aka stupid and I don’t know what I’m doing). One of us would point out some random job, like working at a cafe, and say: “In case that Haas job doesn’t work out….”
This is a fancy latte by the 2nd Best Barista in the World. A few weeks ago, I was brewing up espresso drinks next to barista champ, Heather Perry. She was on a “Got Milk” tour of the state and we interviewed her for our morning show.
She also brought cookies.
She’s from our favorite cafe in San Dimas, the Coffee Klatch. I was so tickled she let me play with her $6,000 espresso machine.

I still remember how to make a latte! In 2002, I worked at Starbucks as a barista. It was my second job, on top of my full-time tech support gig at Haas. I had fun making coffee and taking the espresso machine a part at the end of the night. But I also gained 20 extra pounds thanks to all those free mocha drinks. Evil.
It’s nice to know I have other skills that I can help me land another job…
