It’s really just a silly little story….

Hey I have an idea! While in those coffee shops (preferably ones in bookstores), write a story around the paper cup and leave it for someone else to find. Start the story with “It’s really just a silly little story…”  Here’s the one I did today.

It’s really just a silly little story…I was sitting enjoying my cup of Earl Grey tea and Black CIMG4512Velvet cupcake, flipping through the current issue of “O” magazine, when he sat down. I looked up — amazed I said, “Oh, my God!”  “Yes.” he said.  “You’re…” I hesitated. “Jesus Christ.” He said, “Ta-dah!” “I wasn’t expecting you.” I said. Silence. He smiled. “Would you like a cup of coffee?” I asked. “Yes! I’d love a double shot caramel macchiato with extra whipped cream.” He said. I peered at him from the counter as his coffee was prepared. He was rather intently reading “O”. Back at the table I sat down, my head down, staring at my hands in my lap. I said nothing. The silence was too much. Finally, I blurted out “forgive me!” He said nothing. I heard a “slurp” and looked up. He had whipped cream on his nose and moustache and a goofy grin on his face. We both laughed and, really, that’s where the story begins.

    Sorry, you guys only know how to write BIG and GREAT stories! You will need more training to decline to that level, maybe again with help from God and more aging you can get there, LOL

    What a GREAT idea Im going to try it! I really wish I would have been the first to find that cup and read it what fun! Loved the story. You know, you might just have started a trend!
