Au Petit Poucet

March 8, 2002

There is plenty of space here for coffee drinkers and lunch eaters both, even though it is the lunch rush, partly due to the fact that it is a warm, sunny day and many people are opting to sit at the tables outside. A couple enters and the woman, all the while talking on her cell phone, motions she would like to sit outside but the man shakes his head and puts his hands over his ears in a "it's too noisy outside" pantomime.

A three cube sugar packet for my coffee. The tables here have fake wood tops with real wood edges; the chairs have shiny maroon paint on the metal backs. On the chair across from me this paint is scratched off in several places, revealing the silver color underneath. The seat cushions are a yellowish tan. The sun that has been shining for the past two hours has decided to pass behind some clouds for the moment. The waiter, who crumpled up my receipt and threw it away a while ago, doubts himself and comes back around later to ask me if I've already paid for my coffee. I try to assure him that I have.
