#872 Had a coffee with piglets
A coffee shop and a book
One day I went to a coffee shop which has a bean roaster.
I looked around the room and there was no customer. I found a pile of books on a counter with a note. It said “TAKE FREE.” These books were presents from a writer to the cafe. The book was a short story titled “Kobuta no hamming” (A piglet’s hamming).
When the master brought me the coffee I asked him “May I take one for free?” The master said “Sure”. Then I took a book and read it while sipping my coffee.
I felt as if I were dreaming.
The story was about a coffee shop’s master giving advices on how to live happily and positively to a young lady who has something bothering her. The illustrations were very cute pigs.
I felt a little strange while I was reading the book because the cafe in the book felt just like the one I was in. It felt like the story was happening right in front of me. This book was new and had a nice cover.
Was that a Christmas present for me?
I wondered why it was free. A nice book like this would cost more than a cup of coffee.
Thanks to this cafe and the book writer.
This was a wonderful Christmas present for me.
