During morning walks, I take a break in the shopping mall to do a bit of grocery shopping and take a cup of piccolo coffee. It costs $3:80 and I can make some thing as good at home for less than half a dollar. That seems to be quite a bit of money over a year. Think of Sujata Gidla's' mother's problems with the tea habit of her husband Prabhakara Rao. But Lalita comes about twice a week to have coffee with me at the mall ( Today Ava told her 'You dont have to have coffee with thatha. You want to'). Somehow I have to balance the two, since now after reduction in smoking I do not really need a break in my walk. Lot to think about.
