A Cup of Coffee

Claudia, an ad rep at the Bergen Record, was minding a booth during a real-estate conference. I chatted with her; then she said, I see that you have a cup of coffee. From up the block, I said.

We parted. A little later I returned. Claudia, I said, should I get you a cup of coffee? I'd love one, she said.

Listen, Claudia, I said, forget the subtlety and the indirection. When you're dealing with a man, you say: Listen, jerk, get me a goddamn cup of coffee RIGHT NOW!
