Coffee Spills

What I hear and see and think about at the coffee shops I patronize.
Brisk. Fresh. Well-balanced. Occasional nutty and bittersweet overtones.

Perky coffee clerk

Yesterday afternoon I went into Caribou with my "Tuesdays with Morrie" book. The clerk asked me where I was in the book, and I admitted I didn't remember. "I loved that book," she said. "Our literature teacher read it to us when I was a junior in high school, and I cried." I was really stunned. What a fabulous idea for kids who are into gaming and computers. Read aloud to teen-agers. Pick a simple, but moving story, one which they may someday reenact. Not only will you teach them about life, but for some it may rekindle an interest in books.
