All I need is my coffee.

In desperate need of coffee, I walk into Hi-Fi Cafe. As I walk toward the counter, I open my wallet to find {gasp} a couple of bills and a bunch of change -- mostly nickels and dimes.  

I approach to counter and flash my best I'm-sheepish-and-broke grin. 

Me: Can I please have a large coffee?

Fellow behind the counter: Room for cream?

Me: Nope. But ... uh ... {piling all the money I have on the counter} If I have this much ... like about $4, is that enough for coffee and a muffin, too?

Fellow: That's exactly enough.

Me: Yay! Thank you! 

I smile. Life is good.
