TSOT has a lot of coffee in it.
This made me laugh, AND take pause. It was certainly not intentional, but once I thought about it, I could see that coffee was often present: the ritual of a morning cup, the luxury of coffee during WWII, the comfort of coffee with a dear friend, and so on.
How very interesting and not altogether surprising.
