There's a new vending machine at work! It's similar to the one above but instead of having 3 holes at the bottom for the drinks to come out of there's just one hole in the far right corner. And (here's the neatest part) there's this automated arm thing that comes up, gently snatches your drink and then delivers it to the hole it comes out of. It doesn't shake your drink! And it's fun to watch! I was so stunned at this technical marvel that I sprinted back to my workstation to tell everyone about it. If I'd have had another dollar I'd have bought another drink just to watch that little arm thing carry it to where it needed to be. They probably have these things everywhere but it was the first time I'd seen one. This was the highlight of yesterday's work day.
After sharing my vending machine find, I asked the lady I sit by if her baby smelled good "fresh from the chute" and she said it did. Then she scooched her chair just a little farther away from me.
