“Can I have a latte please?”
“That’s a very ostentatious jacket”
“(Laughs slightly) Yeah, I got it from an opshop yesterday, for $15 bucks”
“People always want to say what a bargain they got, any sugar?”
I go and sit down on the couch in the corner and start devouring Instant Graphics before my friend Jess arrives.
“Oh, you wanted to have it here, not take-away, I’ll let you put your own sugar in”
Then he gives me a funny look.
“Did I have a weird conversation with you the other day?”
“It must have been someone else…”
“I have um, lots of friends that come here.” (Me trying to sound helpful but actually sounding kind of stupid)
So I have my ripper latte and dig into the book, Jess arrives 20mins later and I get a hot-chocolate, (Thick as Chocolate pudding – so good but really rich – I don’t usually do hot chocolate, but their coffee is wham to the soul so you only really need one).
Later that evening I’m at my parents place for dinner and happen to mention that my jacket got called ostentatious and somehow mention that the guy thought he knew me.
Then Laura pipes up with, “Oh I have weird conversations with him all the time, his name is Caspian”
I can’t believe that I forgot I was a twin! I guess I usually bank on the fact that we’re not that alike.
So the big question is, did he really notice your jacket or did he just try to talk to you because he usually flirts with LuLu? 😛
Haha, no – he’s kinda old
And any was Paul – you’ve got your words around the wrong way. The correct grammar would say “or did he just try to talk to you because LuLu usually flirts with him!
That guy is cool!
Excuse me… having decent, conversations with someone who serves you coffee is not considered flirting! Suggesting that is a little bit ostentatious… don’t you think?
Lu, I’m not accusing you of having decent conversations with someone who serves you coffee – I’m accusing you of flirting 😛
GRRRRR…. I have nothing to say to you brother-in-law, other than the simple fact that conversing is fun, flirting or otherwise.
i wonder if this caspian you speak of is me. a former Kofi beaner
and I talk to everyone, its my job. But beautiful Christians always catch my eye. Maybe cause I’m not a faither
