Coffee Stop

I'm not a big fan of Starbucks or fancy coffees. Gimme a straight cup o'joe with a generous dollop of cream and I'm good to go. (Full disclosure: my favorite coffee shop is Tim Hortons. There, I said it.)

But I know that some of you are fans of the Seattle Company.

For you, between now and Sunday, you can get one holiday specialty drink free when you purchase the first.


Bill and Doug were on a cross-country trip and stopped in a little town diner for a break.

The place looked as though it had seen better days. As they slid into a booth, Bill wiped crumbs off the seat, then he took a napkin and wiped a ring of moisture and some more crumbs off the table that someone had missed when they cleaned it after the previous guest.

The waitress appeared and offered them menus. "No, thanks," said Doug. "I'd just like a cup of black coffee."

"I'll have a cup of coffee, also" said Bill, "but please make sure it's in a clean cup."

The waitress shot him a look, then disappeared into the kitchen. A minute later she was back with two cups of coffee.

"Here we are, two cups of coffee. Now which one of you wanted the clean cup?"
