If We Were Having Coffee

I wish I was original in thinking up this post idea, but I'm not...I saw it on my lovely friend Emily's blog about a month ago and have been meaning to write my own ever since. 

If we were having coffee I'd be waiting in a corner table, most likely by a window, set apart from the hustle and bustle. I'd have already ordered my usual- a Venti Cool Lime Refresher with lemonade instead of water, hold the limes and with two pumps of green tea if it was summer, or a Grande Tuxedo with an extra shot if it was fall. I'd also have a sausage breakfast sandwich being heated in the kitchen (we're in Starbucks because where else?)

 I would be wearing leggings and flip flops and either a Calvin Klein hoodie if it was cold or a baggy tee if it was warm; my hair would most likely be in a messy bun or braid and my face of the day would be a little mascara and some blush (anything to look more alive!) 

It would probably be about 9:30 AM because that's a perfect time of morning. 

If we were having coffee I'd ask if I could treat you, because I tend to be a somewhat kind person, and it's on my 101 in 1001 to buy a stranger Starbs (although I'm guessing we're not strangers since we're on a coffee date, am I right?) We'd settle in after you'd gotten your order and I'd grabbed my sandwich, piping hot and crusty, and we'd start chatting. 

If we were having coffee I'd ask what you've been up to; how is your family and what are your plans for the fall? If we weren't perfect strangers and we were relatively the same age, I'd ask what you plan on majoring in, are you considering studying abroad, what is your roommate's name? 

I would tell you all about what's been happening in my life...I'm leaving for college in 28 days, I have no idea who my roommate is or where I'll be living and I haven't even picked my classes yet (hopefully I'll be able to answer all of these questions by the end of today, actually) I would give you the rundown on my latest intended major: Business with an emphasis in Communications, minoring in Spanish and Journalism (this is highly subject to change as I'm a very indecisive person) I would tell you that I'm brainstorming a new blog design, after I mentioned my blog of course. I'd tread carefully, not knowing whether you'd think it cool or freakishly lame. 

I'd ask if you were accustomed to getting a refill, and then I'd proceed to ask for one because why not

If we were having coffee I'd ask you where you got that lovely phone case, and we'd start discussing silly material things that make for lively conversation but don't exactly merit any real value. I'd tell you about my plans to study in Italy during my sophomore year and how it coordinates perfectly with when my cousin will be studying there as well...exactly ten minutes away. I'd ask if you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would it be. I'd ask you if you preferred coffee or tea, depending on what you had ordered and why. 

I would tell you that I plan on going back to Texas next Spring and I'm already getting way too excited. I would tell you about my nephew (who happens to be a dog for now.) I'd tell you my sister is in Wisconsin for a week, and I'm going to a country music concert next Thursday. I'd ask what kind of music you like to listen to. 

If we were having coffee it would mean that I really wanted to spend some time with you and maybe we could do this again before I leave? I'd give you my number, if you didn't already have it and throw away all my garbage. 

I'd give you a hug because I'm a hugger and we'd part our ways, and that would be that. 

All the best,
