"I tip 18% propina every time", the writer replies as he shuffles in his seat. "Well that´s good, I guess", I reply as I lean back, "but what about donating your time to help someone. We are very upstanding citizens here and if you want to be on our team, we need to know that you care--through your actions." "Oh! I can act like I care!" "That´s a start", I say as I...

He pauses; that´s clever. "That´s your writing assignment", I continue speaking as I set down the taza. "I´m not hiding--I´m avoiding. I´m avoiding drama, anger and aggressiveness. By keeping to myself, I am able to, better, focus, on myself and what I want to do.  Besides being essential to happiness, to focus on your interests, it also will lead to more success--every action or thought not in alignment with what you want drains...

I continue speaking to the writer as I take a sip of coffee. "You´re prob used to feeling bad--that´s what you know and what you fall back on." "I don´t think so?" "If you are not used to feeling good--how can you know?" "Maybe I am confused--what´s it mean to feel good?" "It means you stop eating when you want; it means you stop judging or criticising and let go of others; it means you don´t...

"I don´t think that waterbuffalo run off cliffs?", I tell the writer as I lean back in my chair. I turn my head to look out the window in the cafe; 12 surfers. "How do you know?", the writer responds as he takes a sip of coffee, "it could happen." "You know", I reply as I take a sip from my taza, "what if the leader of the rampaging waterbuffalo herd has a parachute...

"Yeah", I reply as I lean back in my chair at the cafe at the beach, "it´s hot." "I want an ice cream of chocolate chip cookie dough--2 scoops. No toppings." "You´re quiet specific", I say as I turn my head to look out the window, "there´s 19 surfers today." "Yes", the waiter responds as he hands me my taza of coffee, "I´m a man that knows what he wants--I don´t want it...

I turn my my head back to the writer. "So", I reply as I turn to look out the window, "you think that the waiter is just as responsible as you for witnessing your biscotti robbery from my plate and not saying anything?" "I'm not saying that he is AS guilty, but I mean let's look at facts.¨ "I think that the facts of this situation say that 'you took the biscotti and you...

"That's cool, dad", HR replies as she types on her keyboard in her dorm room, "so why are you telling me this?" "Because I feel cool!", I reply as I type on the keyboard, "I mean like really cool!" "That's because they prob have neon lights in the space that energize you." "Oh!", I reply as I turn my head and look around at the space, "you're right--it's all neon and there's like lots of...

The newscaster takes off his glasses; this job is not fair, at times. He continues talking as a picture of a giant manchicken is shown on the greenscreen. "There have so far been 193 reported sightings of the manchickens.  It is not cause for alarm, and, instead, we just want you to know that they are out there--there is no pillaging or destruction." I turn my head to HR as I hit digitalmute on the...
