    "One small coffee please."
    —In this heat?
    "Yeh, it's much cooler in the theater."

    "WOW, $3 for a coffee?"
    —Is that expensive?
    "For a small coffee, yeh."
    —How much do you usually pay?
    "About a dollar fifty."

    —$3 is expensive. Sorry, I don't drink coffee. Do you still want it?
    "Uhh, I guess. I hope a portion of it at least goes to charity."
    —Hehe. Would you like me to fill your cup up some more?
    "Yes please."
    —Here you go.
    "Thanks."
    —Enjoy your movie.

    He sipped a hot coffee, to avoid the cool, to avoid the summer heat.
    And enjoyed his movie and small coffee.

    *To Rome, with Love.
