She’d been feeling kind of down in the dumps recently, so I thought inviting her to meet me for coffee at one of her favorite cafés might cheer her up a bit.
She was already there sitting at a table in the corner when I arrived at the café, so I walked up to her, said hello, told her that I’d get us each a cup of coffee, and asked her if she’d like anything to eat.
I could tell that she’d been crying, but she looked up at me, managed a smile, and said, “A piece of cake would make me happy.”
