Elsa's coffee thing

We are at Sloan-Kettering today. The weather outside is not half bad. It's a couple of degrees above zero (celcius, that is) so I'm thinking Summer.

We slept in Stamford, CT, before heading into Manhattan this morning and stopped at Pax, something or other, for breakfast. Good thing it was Elsa's idea (I wanted a full fledged Korean breakfast) because their coffee had a hint of hazelnut, a faux pas in Elsa's eyes, and then she made me buy her an expresso, which was charred, according to her. I've been married to Elsa for over sixteen years now and not once did we ever go into a coffee shop and drank a coffee that she liked. I can tell there is disaster in the making as soon as she takes a wiff. Her nose twists and turns up and ... Well, actually she tried a coffee at Tim Horton's the other day and she liked it. Go figure.

Anyway, the bump in temperature has us in a good mood.

Hey! I took offense at that! What's wrong with Tim Hortons coffee? It happens to be my favorite, along with their everything bagels. Go Timmys!

But Rita, there is nothing wrong with Tim Horton's coffee.

It's just surprising that after trying coffee in so many places, you would find a good cup in a chain, originating way North of the bean belt.

The world is full of surprises.

Ze, you are not on Brivanib and you are having memory problems. What about the coffee in Montparnasse? I wanted to stay in Paris because of it...
