In our neck of Nashville – affectionately known as Hillsboro Village – we've gotten to know the friendly staff at Fido, a coffee shop down the street. Always keeping our coffee cups filled and our sweet tooths satisfied, they never fail to greet us with a smile (well, there was that one time…but let's say that smiling and scalding soy milk don't always mix).
So I can't say we were surprised when the staff at Fido apprehended (or, more accurately, physically tackled) an alleged thief yesterday afternoon, putting their barista duties aside to take down a man accused of stealing laptops and the like from other coffee shops around Nashville. And a few of us just happened to be there getting coffee and saw it all go down.
For their bravery, we salute these everyday heroes. And when we say "salute," we mean we decked each man of courage out with his very own Emma medal. Um, yes, we have company medals.
So today, when you pick up your grande skinny sugar-free vanilla latte with an extra shot of espresso, take a moment to say thanks to your local brewer. You never know what evil they're averting in your neighborhood.
