The apocalypse came quietly.
And with two sugars and optional cream.
At first, nobody noticed anything unusual about the strange coffee trucks.
And why should they?
A mocha in the morning, or a cappuccino at lunch, was hardly anything to worry about.
But some of us did notice.
We saw the expressionless faces of those who began to gather around the trucks from dusk until dawn.
We listened to the one-track conversations about coffee beans, and watched the endless TikTok videos.
And, finally, we recoiled in horror as they came for us, the last of the tea drinkers.
So, we ran.
And we are still running.
