Cut To The Chase

Whoa, Maybe You Should Slow Down A Bit

My friend Nikila arrived at the shop after a grueling 8 hour drive from Toronto. She sat at a table, clearly happy to be home and out of the car. “Can you make me a frothy iced latte, Lu. she asked, and finish the story you began before I left?”

The shop was quiet; my friend Jack was the only other person there, so I had time to go into an animated story mode. When I finished, Jack looked up and said, “Lu. you should begin writing those stories down, there might be a book in there somewhere.”

My coffeehouse was a treasure trove of stories.
