– the coffee shop-
An older, elegant woman walks into a half-empty, quaint coffee shop. She goes to buy a brownie, but a handsome young gentleman catches her eye. She walks over to him as he sits sipping his steaming, hot coffee. She takes a seat.
“Excuse me, mam, that’s my lap,” he says.
She looks at him smiling devilishly. “Mam? Well aren’t you polite,” she replies.
She gulps his coffee unbothered by the hotness.
“How did you do that?” he asks bewildered.
“What’s a guy like you doing in a place like this,” she asks.
“I wanted coffee so…” he answered.
“I love a man who knows what he wants,” she professed.
She rubs her fingers through his hair and fiddles with one of the buttons on his shirt. He sits frozen.
“I’m sorry, but who are…,” he says. “Shhh,” she replies.
She places her finger over his lips. He gives an unpleasant look.
“Your finger smells weird,” he said.
She’s smiles slightly embarrassed. She unbuttons one of his top buttons seductively.
“Uh-oh,” she says teasingly. “I think we both want the same thing.”
“What is it that I want?” he responds with a confused voice.
She whispers in his ear, “You see that brownie? With nuts? ”
“I have a nut allergy,” he responds.
She stares at him silently for a moment; then, casually walks over to the counter and purchases the brownie. She then returns back to the table with young man this time sitting across from him. She takes a bite of the brownie.
“I’m not good at these kind of things,” she confesses.
“Nice to meet you I’m Lisa,” she says with a nervous smile. “Nice weather we’re having.”
“Nice Weather We’re Having” is a quirky, short dialogue series with a play on conversation starters. Enjoy!
