“I, for one, need coffee,” David said. “Before I fall over, I must have a good cup of coffee. No gas station coffee or fast food coffee... a good local coffee shop.”
“Tall order, there, fella,” I said. “But I think our most excellent driver deserves a little coffee. So fire up your phones. The first one to find a local coffee shop doesn’t have to pitch in to pay for it.”
“David, we’re going to a latte trouble for you,” I quipped.
“There are grounds for that,” he retorted. “I am robust and flavorful.”
“I might say you’re automatic drip,” Paige came back.
“Oooh,” Em said.
“Good to the last drop,” Hadley added.
“Now you’re perking me up,” David said. “Can I have a little sugar with that?”
“I can’t keep up with you guys,” Max said. “You just espresso yourselves so well.”
“We can’t seem to filter out the bad jokes,” I admitted.
“Yep, this round’s definitely gone to pot,” Paige muttered.
“Got one!” Em said. “Coffee, Coffee 2.8 miles away.”
