The commercial coffee machine grinds and gurgles — sloshes and splashes.
The trio finds a seat and waits for truck to be serviced.
“Mmmmmhmmmmmm! Grateful for a mo-ka while we’re waitful!” Thalia takes a slurp. “Oh! Hot! Hot!”
Calliope looks first at the wall clock, then at Nia. She fills her nostrils with new car smell. “Well? What can we share today?”
“Clogged.” Nia teases flow-blocking words, ideas, and memories onto the Corian countertop. “Let’s begin with something small and fresh. Here we go — the mocha maker.”
Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.

Delighted to share that our latest experiment over on BFN -- bornfree.substack.com -- is both fun AND energizing. We were gifted 3 amazing #connecticate conversations this week.
A new #connecticate invitation with a new question drops tomorrow morning. Typist and the muses hope you’ll consider joining in the fun.
At our last B&B (it's our tradition for the last 23 years to stay at a B&B for our anniversary) we discovered a cute coffee/cappuccino machine that Deb fell in love with. So easy! So quick! We wrote down the specs and checked on Amazon when we got back home... and found it was expensive to buy, not cheap to maintain, and was perfect for the cute little cups the B&B had but not for the monster mugs Deb & I prefer. <sigh> Well, we're doing okay with our electric kettle, after all. 😁
