So. How did your day begin today?
Mine started when two of my grown offspring showed up with a gift for me.
A bat in a paper coffee cup, with a napkin on top.
They had rescued him from Satellite Coffee here in Tacoma. He’d become disoriented and ended up on the roof there, shivering and showing his tiny bat teeth to anyone who threatened him.
So of course they gathered him up in the coffee cup and brought him to my house.
I took him outside and carefully hung him up in the mock orange bush. After a brief recovery time, he clambered to the edge of the bush and took flight to the plum tree, where the foliage is even more dense.
Pi sniffed the now empty coffee cup and said that if she’d known Satellite was serving Bat Lattes, she would have become a customer long ago.
