Coffeeshop Confessional 2

I would like to share with you another of my Coffeeshop Confessionals that I did this evening, but before I do I must make mention of another Confessional that was submitted by Haley Hughes. Please stop by her blog, The Beacon, and take a look! (This link will open in a new window or tab.) I was very impressed, she did wonderful for her first go!

Now, here's mine:

I did a little editing to clear up some of the text for the picture. It can be hard to write on a napkin sometimes, haha! The fun thing about this was that even though it was a bit rushed (Barnes&Noble closes early on Sunday, surprise!) the inspiration for it came rather quickly. I was standing in line behind a couple that were still clearly in the courtship phase of their relationship. This guy was pulling all the stops and trying to look cool at every turn, she seemed impressed by the attention. I couldn't help but think that his winning smile must be hiding other, less glamorous intentions.
After I finished it up I noticed there was a paperclip that had been left on the table by one of the previous patrons so I clipped the napkin to the plastic drink advertisement and turned it to face the railing that bordered the book section. There was an older gentleman that seemed to be lurking around like a vulture ready to dive in on a dying animal as he wheeled around his big plastic garbage can. I'm pretty sure that the napkin met a rather horrible fate, snatched from its hiding place and tossed into the waste receptacle, likely with a muttered, "Damn kids and their trash."

Not familiar with Coffeeshop Confessionals? Well come on down, the price is right! Tell them what they've won, Bob!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got an overdue journal entry to write!
