“I see that you sell hot chocolate,” my wife Lisa asked the
counter clerk at the Brown Bag deli on Eagle Street in Concord, New Hampshire.
“Do you have any flavored hot chocolate?”
“Yes,” he replied. “We have Sippity chocolate marshmallow,
chocolate cinnamon, chocolate peppermint, chocolate raspberry and, of course,
“Humm,” Lisa injected. “They all sound delicious.”
“All can be topped
with whipped cream if you wish,” the clerk added completing his sentence.
“I think I’ve have the pumpkin spice, with whipped cream,”
Lisa stated to the clerk.
“And I’ll have the chocolate raspberry,” I said. “I'll also
have some whipped cream.”
While we were waiting for our order Lisa and I began sorting
through the many pictures I took this afternoon of the fall foliage on my new Canon
EOS Rebel 35 mm camera, which she had given me three days earlier as a present
for my 29th birthday.
“Awe. I like that one,” Lisa said with enthusiasm as she
looked at a picture of her holding a bouquet of maple leaves in her crossed
arms set against a background of yellow maple trees. “Wow! These are all
beautiful pictures. This camera takes amazing pictures.”
“Excuse me,” the clerk announced as he stood aside our table
holding two cups of hot chocolate. “I believe the pumpkin spice hot chocolate
was yours,” he said to Lisa as he placed the orange cup down in front of her.
“And your chocolate raspberry with whipped cream, sir,” he added placing the
cup in front of me. “Enjoy.”
Five minutes later, after Lisa and I looked through all the
pictures and had enjoyed our hot chocolate, Lisa stated, “I think I want image
37 framed. That’s one of me holding the bouquet of maple leaves.”
