I ducked into the empty donut shop.
“Two double chocolates,” I said, slipping off my wet coat. “And two coffees. Black.”
From behind the counter, she smiled.
“Two?” she asked. “Who’s the second one for?”
I slid onto my favorite stool.

I saw this challenge to create a 42 word short story about the meaning of life. And that is what I came up with. Image from here.
