#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.

アマゾンで検索してみたけど、良さそうな本だよね。
行きつけのコーヒー屋さんなの?
どうしてタダだったんだろう?
クリスマスだからかなぁ。

もうすぐクリスマス。
nakoさんに素敵なサンタさんが来ますように。
プレゼント、もう頼んだ?

全然行きつけのお店でなく、ふらりと入ったお店です。
あんなに綺麗な本が何冊か積んで置いてありました。
皆んな持っていかないのかしら?もしかしたら気づかないのかも。

私はサンタさんに最新の冷蔵庫を頼んであります。

nakoさんが入ったカフェのマスターが本の中に出てくるみんなを幸せにしてくれるマスターみたいですね!

nakoさんのプレゼント、トナカイでは運べなさそう 笑

ちょっと不思議な雰囲気と人がいないカフェ。
美味しいコーヒーを飲みながらの読書。
贅沢な時間でした。

たまさんのご指摘どおり、
最新の冷蔵庫は大きすぎたんでしょうか。
サンタさんは届けてくれませんでした。
それとも高価すぎたのか…?
