If we were meeting for coffee, I'd have you meet me at this wonderful lil joint I discovered last month. They have delicious coffee and yummy espressos too. If I knew you well enough [which I probably do], I'd get both our usuals and have it waiting at our table. And once you arrived, I'd probably greet you like this:
Once we were settled, seated and sippin' we'd immediately start gabbing. I'm sure it would start with the classic "I love your outfit, where did you get X" and the "that purse is so fabulous, love it". You know girls, always talking fashion something or other. And handing out compliments like they're going out of style.
We'd probably segue into the 'hows life' chat. I'd tell you things at work have been a lil stressful this week. Nothing too crazy our out of the norm, but now that my boss is gone, stressful is a bit more of a yellow flag for me. Luckily, our new boss seems competent, but there's talk about moving buildings which kind of makes me see red. Hopefully, like in the past, it won't happen and I'll continue my easy, opposite traffic commute. I'd ask you about your job and if you're happy there. Are you looking to further your education? Is there a promotion on the rise? Do you have any fun/crazy/say what stories to share about your job?
Since it's summer, I'm sure we'd talk a lot about vacation plans and pool time plans. Do you have any big plans coming up? Travel destinations on your bucket list? I love a good travel bucket list, so I'd share the many places I'd love to visit one day [eello Australia and Europe]. I'd share with you my exciting vacation plans and some vacation secrets too. There would probably be a 'Holy cow, how is it already the end of June' moment.Obviously, allllllll the kickball tournaments would be mentioned and I'd talk about how many more I have this year [6?]. I'm sure you'd look at me like I was cray-cray, but you know I am, haha.
Then I'd also ask if you've watched any good shows recently. I'm pretty much a creature of habit when it comes to tv, I have my NCIS, Elementary, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, Chopped and other cooking shows, but don't really JUMP into anything that's popular. You might be able to convince me, or I might be able to get you hooked on some of my shows. I'm pretty good at suggesting shows, if I do say so myself.
Of course the conversation would turn to relationships. Are you dating someone new [if you're dating] or how are things with the S/O? If you're engaged, I'd ask all the wedding questions you could handle, because I'm such a lover of weddings and love. If you're going on a date this week, I'd squeal in anticipation and happiness for you too. I'd try my best not to over share, when I talk about marriage and the past few months. I'm insanely happy and love everything about being a wife. Naturally, I'd comment on how fast the year has flown by and the fact that our one year anniversary is JUST around the corner [WHAT!!?]. And no, we aren't any closer to having kids than we were when we got married. We aren't the type to feel the need to rush and are enjoying our 'just us time'. Since relationships aren't only romantical, I'd check with how you and your friends are doing. Any drama/issues? Any new friends? If there was constant drama, I'd tell you cut em out. From experience, it's the best thing you can do. I had to do it not too long ago, and losing the negativity and drama in my life was like dropping ten pounds of weight. Holding onto bad/toxic/draining friends is bad for your health and mind and life's too short to be anything but happy.
When it's time to finally leave, I'd grab you in another big hug and say the cliche "Let's do this again soon", but I'd mean it. Friends and coffee catch up time makes my day better, so the more the merrier my life will be. You'd also receive the cliche, "thanks for meeting me" text when you got to your car. Because, yeah, I'm that friend...but you know you love me!
Another virtual coffee date soon, okay?!?!
