Topic: A three-year-old makes me an espresso (7 msgs / 121 lines)
1) From: Pecan Jim Gundlach
Joseph Brandon Pike, my three-year-old grandson was visiting and while 
he was playing around, he took a dollhouse cup and a chrome microscope, 
brought them out to the coffee table in front of me and put the cup 
under the microscope lens, turned the knob and made a buzzing sound. He 
then handed me the cup and said "Here's your coffee Jim."  I said 
"Thank you."  I then "drank" the coffee and told him he made good 
coffee.  He smiled, obviously pleased with himself.

I love it!  Logan has on numerous occasions made me "machine coffee", with 
accompanying sounds of course.
OH, and yesterday, we stopped at a local coffee shop for tea for her and 
Penny.  Logan said I should get coffee and I told her I don't like their 
coffee.  She replied I should bring my own that was not burnt and make them 
use it too make me a good coffee.  They learn so fast :)

That's a great story, Jim
Budding Barista Buzzes Up A Boffo Brew.
With the amount of years it takes to become a master barista your 
grandson is probably
right on schedule at the age of three. Compared to all the lemonade 
stands, a kid running an
espresso stand would be a big hit. Jim, now you know what kind of gifts 
this little guy
will love. You can modify a steam toy to run on air pressure and use 
real coffee. In a few
years he can move on to the real deal. This clever, imaginative boy may 
be headed for MIT.
