The barrister promised the customer something special in the coffee today. “You’ll take off,” she said.
The man went home and looked into his coffee. It looked creamy smooth and luscious. He wondered what the barrister had put in his coffee this time?
The man waited for a sweet surprise.
He was sitting at his desk, waiting. Waiting for inspiration.
And waited. And waited. Until his coffee went cold.
Then something occurred to him. There was a hissing sound outside. Could the gas be leaking?
The man went outside and saw a hot air balloon. The boy in the balloon said, “Get on board!”
They flew high that day. The boy said, “How was the coffee?”
“I guess I just had enough before it got cold,” said the man.
“You’ve taken off now. Wasn’t that what the barrister promised?”
The man smiled. “The barrister made my day.”
