“Can I get you a coffee, Phil?  I’ll tell you, if you had the night I had last night, you would be needing a coffee bad right now.”

On the double

TONY
“Phil, how about I buy you a coffee this morning?”

PHILIP
“Now that’s an offer I can’t refuse.”

TONY
“That’s the idea, if you know what I mean.”

Service with a smile

May 6, 2010

PHILIP
“How come you’ve never made me a coffee?” I figure I’ve made you a hundreds cups over the last 10 years.”

TONY
“I don’t know but I’ll make you one if you say how’d you like it.”

PHILIP
“OK, medium-dark,lots of cream and go medium on the sugar … “Hey, look at that. It’s service with a smile!”

TONY
“You betcha.”

Smelling the coffee

Obama with coffee cup - July 6 2009

TONY
“Coffee smells pretty good first thing in the morning, if you ask me.”

PHILIP
“Where’s it from?”

TONY
“This lady came by, she was from the States and she told me to ‘have a good Independence Day’.  So, just to bug her, since she’s a Yank, I say: ‘Oh, isn’t that an American version of our Canada Day?  Well, we both laughed and then she got me this coffee.”

Another call

TONY (leaving a voice message for Philip)
“Phil, if you’re around, how about coming down to Timothy’s and buying an old man a coffee …”

She didn’t even have a top

“It’s a bit disgusting but you should really hear this for the blog. The other day, this woman comes out of Alternative Grounds, she’s got a nice hot coffee. It’s the first time I’d seen her and we got chatting about all the birds around, especially the pigeons when you know what happens to her coffee which didn’t even have a plastic top on it.”Well you don’t need much imagination to figure what came next.”

TONY
“You know, I almost got arrested the other night, you know when it was really freezing and there was no electricity?”

PHILIP
“This seems to be an all-too-regular occurrence, if you don’t mind me saying so. I mean the ‘arrested’  part.”

TONY
“Well what can I say.

“Anyway, I found this trailer so I got inside. One of my regulars owns it and I figured he wouldn’t mind even if he knew I was there. I was so damn cold I had to get out of the wind somehow.”

PHILIP
“So how did you nearly get arrested?”

TONY
“Well I had my bike light that I was using for light inside, and then it started flashing and a cop car was cruising by and the cop could see my light flashing from inside the trailer. So of course he comes to investigate and he finds me and gets me out, you know, to question me. So I just tell him the truth, that it was really cold and I didn’t break anything or steal anything. Well he tells me he could charge me with B&E, but he’s not that kind of guy, and besides, he probably would have done the same thing in my situation.”

PHILIP
“Sounds like a pretty decent guy … ”

TONY
“No kidding. That’s not even half of it. He has me get in the cruiser with him and we drive to down the Coffee Time but it’s closed just like everything else with the power problems they had. So we find some place that’s open, he buys me a coffee and then he drives me back to Ronces. It was bitter cold out there but at least he went easy on me.”

Inequitable relief

TONY
“You look like you’ve been hit by a Mac truck.”

PHILIP
“Feels like it a bit.”

TONY
“What happened?”

PHILIP
“Drug reaction, I think.”

TONY
“Didn’t I tell you to stay away from drugs.”

PHILIP
“It was cold medicine, for God’s sake. I think I had some sort of weird interaction problem.”

TONY
“What happened?”

PHILIP
“I called a friend in New York to go out for a coffee. I thought it was his birthday.”

TONY
“Did you at least tell him happy birthday?”

PHILIP
“I can’t remember. I can’t even remember calling him.”

TONY
“So how do you know you called him?”

PHILIP
“He sent me an email asking if I was OK.”

TONY
“Well you seem OK now. A Mac truck can sure take a lot out of you, though.”

PHILIP
“Very funny. Can I get you a coffee?”

TONY
“Look at the sidewalk here. All that shovelling. I did it myself when I got here.”

PHILIP
“Good job. That’s very nice of you.”

TONY
“Well, they let me sit outside their cafe all day and they don’t bother me. Of course, I buy coffee from them too sometimes. So it’s a mutual thing, if you know what I mean.”

Yuck. Not worth the wait if you know what I mean.”

PHILIP
“Can I get you a coffee?”

TONY
“No thanks, I’m just fine.”

PHILIP
“Do you want something else?”

TONY
“No thanks, Phil — I don’t really need anything right now.”
