I woke with my head on my arms bent over at the table. My body felt as if I’d slept there a full week through. I creaked my eyes open and scanned around. I’m nose to nose with my ivory coffee cup, or I would be if coffee cups had noses. I stared off the end of my nose assessing my memories of this cup when it opened its eyes. Two eyes, the brightest white I had ever seen. White eyelashes, white iris and pupil, the works. The cup blinked at me. Then its beautifully shaped snow-coloured lips moved, “Coffee is hot and fresh.” Its white eyebrows wiggled as I screamed and pushed back so hard, I overturn my chair and found myself with my feet and legs flailing in the air like I’m an overturned turtle.
If we were having coffee, I would remind you that for 2023 I’m starting my coffee share posts with a running story themed around enchanted coffee (posted at the top in italics).
If we were having coffee, I would share with you that I have a mother and son lunch date planned. I also have a lunch date with a friend this weekend. I am looking forward to both. It is shaping up to be a good weekend. Friday night movie night is scheduled to be the new Top Gun movie with snacks. There will be editing, reading, board games, and puzzle.
If we were having coffee, I would ask you if you could recommend a book that’s title starts with the letter U? I’m preparing for the April A-to-Z challenge and need a letter U idea.
If we were having coffee, I would ask you about your week?
