A Scene from Old Europe (a coffee shop)

A patrol cruiser pulls up to the café. The officer enters the front and orders a coffee to go from the dark haired coffee server. We're all wearing uniforms -- conforming to something chosen or imposed as we eat from the table of civility.

A hipster hugs one of the coffee servers, lifting her blouse off her waistline as he does do, and says good-bye. He leaves through the front, turns and glances back at her through the glass door.

A young couple with an infant consume coffee and dessert. It's difficult to be hip with children. They have a way of removing the mask of coolness and success. Like Vikings, children pillage conversation with unexpected outbursts. Soon the couple slouch in defeat and leave with the little respect and dignity they can muster.
