“There’s a bookstore here somewhere,” Lula said. “I’ve never been in it, but I saw it advertised. Maybe she would like a book.”

 

“She has four kids,” I said. “She hasn’t got time to read.”

 

“That’s a shame,” Lula said. “Everyone should read.”

 

“Do you read?”

 

“No. But I think about it sometimes. Problem is, I go to a bookstore and there’s so many books I get confused. So, I get coffee. I know what I’m doing when I order a coffee.”
