Journal Entry

July 16th, 188 *hears a muffled scream and a thumping noise*

“ohhhhhh dear, looks like another bar crawler has fallen foul of the basement stairs of the bar…”

Dear Journal

About a week ago a representative of Mondrago was exploring the bars and coffee houses of the City of New Babbage.  I ran into her just before she departed.  Nice woman.  Apparently she was on a tarde mission to export some of Mondragos “Excess Coffee Stock” and she would like to send me a “small sample” of the coffee that Mondrago produces.

Now.. ‘Small Sample’ usually means a brown paper bag sealed up…enough for maybe 4 or 5 cups of coffee to taste and then you order more.

Imagine my surprise when i entered my hotel lobby and seen two exhausted dock workers waiting for me to sign off on a FREE sample of coffee…

….20 SACKS of Coffee…on a stacking pallate.

“Small Sample”….

    That’s just a couple of days’ worth of coffee for me.

      I’m going to assume you go through two or three bags of coffee a day…but exactly how many cups of coffee is that you drink a day?

    I can find a place for what you don’t want.

    Perhaps she should have brought it to Mr Harvey, Vic. (winks) And besides, Mondrago’s native coffee is very bracing.

    • Mr. Arnold Mr. Arnold June 23, 2012

      I think Mr. Harvey bought her out of one of her stocks of something…and if that’s the SMALL sample…

        (nods) I see. You should be happy, Vic. It could have been worse. (chuckles)
