It looks like our weekly coffee date is happening a few days early! Our assignment is to write a post as if you’re in a coffee shop… little do the heads of Writing 101 know this is something I do every week. Given that it’s an assignment and I’m quite busy this weekend, let me make you a cup of something… What is your favorite drink? I want to make sure I have it…
If we were having coffee, I’d let you know all sorts of trivial things. We got four inches of rain yesterday. My older brother took me to a pro baseball game in Minneapolis the other day. (The Twins lost, but it was still fun!) My younger brother called me from college and we talked on the phone for over an hour. I’m going to the Renaissance Festival on Sunday and a concert on Monday. (I’m in for a busy weekend.) We’re reaching the peak of orchard season, which means work life is high stress.
Mostly, though, I’d gush about my kittens. The momma keeps moving them from bush to bush. They’re starting to wander around, so she has a hard time keeping them in one place. Yesterday, during the thunderstorms, she moved them into the woods. This morning, I practiced my herding abilities and lead them back to a warm cat house. They’re getting very tame. If they hear my voice, they come over and crawl on my lap. We’ve slowly been giving them names. So far, we have Herman, Charlotte, Pip, and Carlos. We already have people lined up to take two of them, which is sad, but I’m glad they’ll have good homes. Do you have any name suggestions for the remaining three?
If we were having coffee, I’d let you know that it has been so fun getting to know you. I know, it’s hard to truly get to know someone over the internet, but over the past few weeks I have interacted with so many wonderful people because of Writing 101. I love the assignments, but I think it’s even more fun seeing how you all respond to them. I’ve never been much of a commenter before this course and I’m finding that I like being pushed out of my box. It makes for great interactions! Thank you so much for reading and engaging with my blog, but more so, thank you for writing such wonderful posts of your own.
Now that I’ve chatted a bit, I’d like to turn things over to you. If we were having coffee, what would you have to share?
