This piece of creative writing arrived in my life in the old fashioned style. It is one of the most charming impressions ever scribbled on the back of an envelope, and I dare anyone to provide evidence to the contrary! Every time I read it, it's like I'm actually there, in that diner, sitting next to the author. Sketches have that magical ability of drawing us in - signposting with a few cruicial words and letting your mind happily fill in the blanks. Thus less becomes more while your imagination tickles.
