Smoking Diaries #5: Analog in a Digital World
Our narrator takes a trip to Los Angeles and discovers how behind-the-times she is: Wrong phone adapter, GPS fail, and how the hell do you order at Dunkin' Donuts?
by Sarah Hepola
Your roving correspondent is in Los Angeles this week, staying with a friend in Pasadena. This disruption in our usual routine led to a few wild goose chases, including a search for an electrical outlet at McDonald’s and Del Taco (no dice), a visit to a local coffee shop that turned out to be a DryBar, and a very confounding trip to a Dunkin’ Donuts at 6:15am.

Trust me, it’s an adventure.
