Dear Girl Who Fell Asleep At Starbucks

Dear Girl Who Fell Asleep at Starbucks,

I’m sorry I kept looking over at you. You probably didn’t notice though. Your head was back, eyes closed, and mouth open. I promise I probably would not have stared as much if your phone wasn’t ringing so loudly or so consistent and persistent. It was hard not to keep checking up on you. It was quite amusing to tell you the truth.

Honestly, I was quite envious of you. I wish the world could be so dead to me when I sleep. As long as I’m on my honest confessions streak…I may have texted others about you. Several of them were telling me to wake you up but I don’t think you would have appreciated that. I even had a friend tell me I should blog about you…too bad I couldn’t ask for your permission to do so, I hope you don’t mind. It’s actually a good thing I wasn’t brave enough to ask for your permission. I was also advised to take a picture of you asleep, head back, and mouth open but again not brave enough.

I hope you had a pleasant nap. You seemed kind of disoriented and grumpy when you awoke. I suppose I would be to if I awoke and coincidentally dropped all my stuff.

Maybe I’ll see you at Starbucks tomorrow afternoon,

Starbucks Amused Patron

Back from the dead, kind of.

I know. I know.

I disappeared. As of today, Jury Duty is over and a post will be written about that sometime tomorrow since I report back to work tomorrow and will be there til 3 pm instead of half-day like last year. (Hear my annoyance?)

Anyway! Keeping in theme with boys, guys, etc.

Yesterday I went to Starbucks to study. It was around 5pm.

I placed my books at an available table then ordered my hot tea.

I came back to my table-drink and butter croissant in hand. This guy at a table in front of me commented on my books.

Guy: Oh fun the CPA exam

Me: oh yes did you take the exam?

Blah blah.. we’re talking about the exam.

Unfortunately, about 5 minutes into the conversation someone catches my eye…

Guys have caught my eye every now and then. I never really expect anything substantial than just the feeling that I still look pretty good. Conceited? Maybe anyway!

Random guy who caught my eye joins tail-end of conversation.

RGWCME: oh studying… I’m so glad I don’t have to do that anymore..

Me: oh yeah I graduated last year but have to study for this exam…

RGWCME: Oh you studying for your Masters…?

Me: No I’m taking a break from school right now I’m not sure when I’ll head for that yet…

RGWCME: By the way I’m “Random guy who caught your eye and you apparently caught mine too”

Me: Melanie..

RGWCME: it was nice meeting you….see you around.

End of story.

Random I know, lol.

Considering I haven’t been in the game as people lovingly refer to it as…. I don’t quite know what to do or how to respond.

THOUGHTS:

#1. I HAVE TO BLOG ABOUT THIS

#2. Since blog is unavailable I’ll tweet

#3. After tweeting… must text others.

So… a few responses:

Cousin #1: Was he cute? did you get his number? did you give your number?

Cousin #2: Dude… ROFL where was this at?

Friend #1: Boys are so goofy.

Friend #2: What in the world? Where at?

No, I didn’t get his number. Yes, I’m planning to return to the same Starbucks approximately at the same time. Actually, a little bit earlier.

Until later tonight or tomorrow, we shall see.
