About the Book

A one-act play.

Two strangers – both retired – get off on the wrong foot over a favorite table at the cafe.

Joe celebrates his first day of retirement by stopping into the cafe for a cup of coffee and the newspaper. He doesn’t realized that he has chosen the seat and the newspaper of longtime regular, Eddie, who is a creature of habit. Marlene, the cafe’s matriarchal waitress diligently tries to talk Joe into moving just as Eddie shows up and makes a scene. Joe bites his tongue on Marlene’s account and moves to the other table, leaving Eddie to read his beloved obituaries.

From this awkward beginning, an unlikely friendship develops.
