Me: Hi, I am leaving office now, can we meet at GN Chetty Road Barista before going home?
At the Barista
Wife: Why this sudden plan?
Me: Today is the day I am dressed at my shabby best and I want to see them squirm at serving me.
Wife: "Withering stare" and a silence
And as we go in, some one calls her. It is her boss and mentor from her previous company. He is interviewing somebody, so is dressed in corporate wear and the contrast couldn't be more clear. I am grinning. We take the table farthest from him.
I place the order, and go and take the plate from the counter. And on reaching our table place it down, a little too fast. The smoothie I ordered tips and is all over the table.
A lot can happen over Coffee.
