This is really something I’ve got to deal with; I have children, and I’m gonna have to help them with their schoolwork. I just wish it didn’t bring back feelings of frustration and anger. And I get upset with them…it’s not fair. Maybe talking it over with mom will help.
With her day carefully planned, Regina ran errands and made time for a quick stop by the Krusty Kup. She enjoyed going by the diner for coffee and an opportunity to catch the latest gossip.
The Krusty Kup was on the corner of the courthouse square. It was the social gathering place for Polk Ridge and was often filled to capacity when court was in session. Most of the buildings that surrounded the courthouse were as old as the courthouse itself, and the Krusty Kup was no different. The renovated windows of the Krusty Kup were enlarged and were now solid sheets of glass, allowing patrons to view the square’s activity as they munched on food or simply gathered for a morning cup of coffee.
The inside of the restaurant was filled with the sounds and smells of conversation, cooks and waitresses completing orders, and the smell of coffee and delicious food. Breakfast was served all day, but from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., there was fried chicken, steak with gravy and a smorgasbord of garden vegetables.
Regina never missed an opportunity to gather with other townspeople. She loved the food and the conversation there. It was always a welcome change from the solitary existence of a housewife and mother.
