Coffee Blurred


Sometimes life comes in all too clear and at other times it can be blurry and a bit out of focus. Met Paul here yesterday morning for our monthly coffee shop exchange. Although we had crossed paths during the week, there is always something to chat about with this guy. We had made plans to tryout a new place this Sunday, and although we had talked the previous evening and reminded each other of the meeting he still messed up. I was there at the appointed time. After about 15 minutes, I said to myself he's waiting at the Bard, I bet. Sure enough, he was 'lost' or had been led astray. When he showed up, he seemed blurred. A couple of expressos this early might do the opposite of the intended. Coffee and the morning paper... I had company till he arrived.
Sunday morning, Cremo Coffee Co.

  16. Coffee solves everything . . . except having too much coffee. Not sure that's possible. Great story.
