One of my little joys every morning, is my coffee. It's not an ordinary coffee, since it comes with a few extras.
On a typical morning, on the way to picking up my daughter, I'll head out to my favorite little coffee shack. It's one of those little independent deals, and it's owned and operated by a great little couple. Margi runs the show and also her husband, Darwin.
Margi is the prototype. She is a slightly heavyset woman, (of a certain age), (and a certain unnaturally bluish hair color), who possesses an indelible personality. She reminds me of a lunch counter waitress from the late 50's.
