Foi em uma quinta-feira do mês de maio de 2015, eu tinha uma reunião marcada para as 11:00h mas havia chegado na cidade de São José do Rio Preto lá pelas 08:30, tomei café no  posto Tropical, era um pão na chapa tropical (pão na chapa com uma quantidade generosa de requeijão cremoso) e um cappuccino, já que estava tentando diminuir a quantidade absurda  de café que tomava na época. 267 more words
