#Everyday Inspiration, Day Eleven: A cup of Coffee

Day Eleven : A cup of coffee

“A Virtual Coffee Date,”

If we were having coffee right now, I’d tell my daughter stories of my childhood and my naughty brothers, first I’d let her get some coffee and a piece of that delicious cake which only exists in, ‘Second Cup.’

I will tell her a few anecdotes about how we were when we were little. I’d tell her about my two older brothers who  sneaked  into the pantry to  steal food one day. They hid behind the door of the pantry, and waited for our servant to lay the cooked food on the table. Once the food was  laid on the table and the servant left,they  tip-toed in  and grabbed some food. They didn’t have time to eat because my other brother who I thought  was coming for the same reason  changed his mind when he saw them,  instead he grabbed their hands  and marched off with them to show my mother what those two were up to.

Mom was not finished cooking yet she was in the  kitchen, when she turned around she saw  the three of them, two of them with their hands full of food.Mom figured out by seeing two of her sons with  food and the third one,  bringing them  with their wrists tied, the scene was comical. My  mom  knew what had happened, she nearly passed out  laughing. I watched the whole thing and could not believe mom did not punish them. 🙂
