This is a virtual cafe where all ideas are entertained all facts discerned, all topics discussed. And just because the proprietor has a passion for Christ, books, and the Acoustic guitar, that doesn't mean you can't veer wildly off into different subjects. So, come in, have a coffee (imported especially from Verble's finca in El Salvador), and talk about whatever you want.

Overheard at Table Four: Charity and the English Major
Maria leaned in, and said, "But why not? That semester I remember he was really into you!"
She shrugged and said, "Because of my name. Charity. Any English major, at some point in our relationship, would say something stupid about how charity is giving out without expecting to get anything back. And I knew that would make me so mad I'd probably gouge out the guy's eyes with a fork."
Maria laughed. "So basically, you just saved the life of at least one English major."
Charity smiled. "For whatever that's worth, yeah."
Maria said, "So, you actually DO live up to your name."
Charity gave her the look that only true friends can give when the other delivers a subtly cloying truth.
