It is always over a cup of coffee, right from the word â€˜goâ€™â€¦. That is, when you get up in the morning. When you are racking your brain for an apt word or an idea, the Coffee does the trick. When you have an unexpected guest at an odd hour, and you are stuck up with the usual, â€œWhat a pleasant surprise!â€ or â€œAfter a long timeâ€ or â€œHow are youâ€¦ I am fineâ€, You would say, â€œWait a minuteâ€, and go to the Kitchen and will be back with Coffee and cookies for all and your conversation gets a â€˜Kick-startâ€™ over a cup of coffee.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â But coffee is not in the good books of the health-conscious people mainly because, according to them, it kills oneâ€™s appetite, though therein lies its magic. For the very same reason, it could be recommended for the retired People!
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Here is an interesting event when a clever cook saved a person from an embarrassing situation on a wedding dayâ€¦ (His daughter was getting married). This gentleman was very calculative. He expected nearly 200 people to participate in the wedding feast and there was enough for another twenty invitees. All went off very well till 1pm and he heaved a sigh of relief; but to his chagrin, a â€˜bus fullâ€™ of people arrived at that time (the invitees who were not taken into account by this gentlemen). On seeing that he was upset because the food available at that moment would be just sufficient for ten persons, the clever cook consoled him: â€œI can manage sir, we have enough milk and coffee powder. First, we will serve strong and tasty coffee to all of them before taking them to the dinner hall.â€ The gentleman was not all that sure about this suggestion but he received the â€˜battalionâ€™ with folded hands while they apologized for the delay. The formalities over, they were given coffee. â€œDelicious, Deliciousâ€ they said while sipping the coffee. The moment they finished the coffee, the cook took them to the dinner hall. The appetite-killer had done the trick and the available food was more than sufficient.
