If we were having coffee…

If we were having coffee we would discuss the events in Paris on Friday evening and bemoan the extremism that values life so poorly and takes life so easily and all in the name of religion. How can anyone’s God condone this?

If we were having coffee I would have to tell you about last weekend. We went to Thomond Park in Limerick where Munster played Treviso and won. We stayed in the Limerick Strand Hotel and both were perfectly accessible.

If we were having coffee we would discuss the homeless crisis here at home which in good weather is bad enough but with winter rapidly approaching it rises to a new level of emergency.

If we were having coffee we might talk about the General Election, pencilled in for February 2016 and because we have similar views on lots of things we would probably agree that the status quo should be maintained but probably won’t. We would both fear the rise in the number of Independent politicians because we see them as parochial and not national.

If we were having coffee we would discuss the weather hoping the rain won’t get too heavy or last too long; that the cold won’t be too cold but cold enough to kill all airborne bugs and that we will have a white Christmas but that the snow won’t stay around too long after the kids have had their fun.

If we were having coffee we would briefly discuss my health. I would tell you that I am brilliant and you would tell me that you are fantastic and we would both know that we are both lying. But we would both know that we are there for each other when and if the need arises.

If we were having coffee we would argue about whose turn it was to pay and then we would adjourn until the next time.

    Hooray, another non-coffee drinker! I sometimes think that I alone don’t drink it. Thanks for the tea… and, you are brilliant!! 🙂

      What kind of biscuits/cookies do you like with your tea?

        Not a great biscuit eater, but when I do, I quite like a custard cream!
