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. 🙂
