The diner is long and narrow. Itís run by an ancient Chinese couple, who may or not speak English. She doesnít know, because all she orders is coffee.As soon as they see her come in the door, they pour a cup of coffee and push it across the cracked pink formica counter.She takes it to one of the booths with its peeling green vinyl upholstery and miniature jukebox.Some of them work, some of them donít, and she always puts in a quarter just in case, mentally betting on the result. Today is a win. †
