What makes you a coffee shop candidate? Well in my eyes…
It’s that woman sitting in the corner zoned out from all that going on around, a child screaming in her ear hole would not wake her from her daze. What is she thinking about? Maybe how her life isn’t going right, what she has done to deserve this. What can she do to make her life better?
It’s the young mum pushing her pram through the doors going to show off her baby to her friends. “Look I think she’s teething!” All the ooo’s and aww’s the baby is the centre of the scene
It’s the man in his smart attire getting a pick me up coffee ready to battle away the week! He’s dreading that meeting he’s got at 9, he’s hoping that the coffee will give him the fix he needs. Maybe his tired eyes will fade durning the day.
It’s that teenage girl trying to pull the push door, she’s shy and now nervous. “I’ve just made a fool of myself” repeatedly bounces around her head. She wondered why she made that commitment, she didn’t need that coffee she just wanted to look cool as she walked into school. All she ever wanted was to fit in.
It’s that group of woman holding a mothers meeting, gossiping about Julie from down the school - “she let her child go to school without a coat!” “How disgusting!” Every woman who is that perfect mother gets picked away at even the fathers too!
It’s that new boyfriend wanting to impress his girlfriend “babe I’ve got you a hot chocolate, with foofy cream and marshmallows!” All he wants it a happy relationship - everyone’s dream.
Are you a coffe shop candidate?
In my eyes everyone experiences that daily judge, glares and stares, but who cares?
A lot of people care but do they act on it? No, they grab their coffee to go and walk, walk as fast as they can - hoping they are invisible and no one saw them, hoping they were not the target of teenage talk.
Everyone is a coffee shop candidate
So a different post from me, not sure about it but I was just inspired. I wanted to address the fact that everyone feels a certain way in public.
