“We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re approaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter –
‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’
They pay for their order, take the two and leave.
I ask my friend: ‘What are those ‘suspended’ coffees ?’ ‘Wait for it and you will see’ she replies…
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made for three lawyers – three for them and four ‘suspended’.
While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square in front of the café.
Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in through the door and kindly asks ‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’
It’s simple – people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm beverage.
The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwich or a whole meal.”
Bit of a Different Topic, But I Run so I can Eat and Fit into Clothes too. I don’t love it at all, it’s ok sometimes you get a nice buzz at the end and sometimes you sleep better, but running is a life skill…. Zombies might just come (See the Centre of Disease Control USA http://www.cdc.gov/phpr/zombies.htm For more info on that). I guess the link to teaching is that comics are an amazing way to communicate ideas.
This is just a super duper short post So short that it won’t even have pictures *GASP* but while I was casually surfing the internet I was inspired by an unlikely source.
If you haven’t checked out the oatmeal then you are actually missing out on life. I truly think he is a champion of the internet and should be bowed down to and cherished as a god. Sorry captain ginger beard I may have a slight crush on him….
This morning he posted a new link on his FB page to his new comic. http://theoatmeal.com/comics/running . If you were ever that fat kid and you have made a change (or you really really want to) read this, it’s important. 🙂

Today’s Post is pre-writen, I am sitting at home on Sunday the 12th of May, 10 days until i will leave, watching the end of Call the Midwife. But the day you all get this I will be hiking Mt Blanc or possibly Crawling up Mt Blanc. But for now some motivation. I love to teach because it means I am changing the world yet to come.
Why do you love to teach?
