Doing Time in the Coffee Shop

Thirty five years ago I met a man in the coffee shop. He told me that he had been coming here for thirty five years. I smiled at him and said really? That was my first time. Thirty five years later I am still here in the coffee shop. Today I spoke to a young man. I told him I had been coming here for thirty five years. He smiled at me and said really? This was his first time.
