During the Jay Leno interview, Adam happily described his first job working as a barista at Starbucks: “I worked at Starbucks when I was 16. It was alright, I liked meeting new people, I liked talking to customers – that was exciting. But I used to come home, and I just stunk of coffee beans. It’s awful. (..) It just sinks into your skin. And if you’ve ever smelled coffee grinds after they’ve been sitting for a while, it’s like menour.. it’s awful.”
There is a perfect picture of 16-year-old Adam to go along with this description; it’s been around for a while but in the context of this interview it doesn’t hurt to bring it up again. Adam as a Starbucks barista.
If we go back even more, to an 8-year-old Adam, we find a new photo! The 3rd grade of Deer Canyon Elementary school in 1990, with mrs. Donndellinger, shows an adorable young kid. Try to see if you can spot Adam amongst all of these kids?
In case you can’t – I don’t blame you, the kid has changed slightly over the course of the years! – try looking at the top row, the second boy from the left. With a dazzling smile and oversized blue shirt. Wanna zoom in a bit? Here you go!
Very, very cute!
