Overheard at Table 3: First Gunshot Death of 2020

Dever Dodd: Did'ya hear about the lady who got shot New Years?

Clare O'Casey: No, what happened.

DD:  12:01am she steps out on to her porch and BAM! gets shot.

COC: Drive by?

DD: They don't think so.  They think it was 'celebratory gunfire' is how they put it.

COC: Like some sort of Pashtun Wedding.

DD: If that's the kind where they shoot guns in the air, well, yeah.

Barista [brings Dever and Clare their refills]: That was my neighbor.

COC: What?

Barista: Yes.  About 4 houses down from me.  I didn't know this, but she was also my sister's supervisor at the mental health clinic.

DD: Talk about six degrees of separation!

Barista:  I'm just glad I know Jesus.   Cuz you never know what's going to happen.
