The Coffee Date Crasher

Tonight I went out for coffee with one of my bestest friends, Rhiannon.

Now - Rhi and I lived together for many a year.

We get each other.

We can not talk for weeks, and then it's like..wha-bam - didn't I see you yesterday?

Yet we can hang out 24/7...and never run out of things to talk about.

When we haven't seen each other or been able to catch up for a while..coffee dates are our thing.

We order a large of something (the coffee part of the date is optional - especially when they often take place late at night..) and sit.

And then we talk. And talk. And talk some more.

We people watch.

We talk about the latest this or that.

We share what's been up in our respective lives.

And we have spent countless hours...just sitting. Often in ONE sitting.

Yeah - we've been known to have to have multiple pee breaks and multiple warm beverages in one night - because we've been sitting at 'our table' for 3, 4 or 5 hours. Just chatting.

It's kind of our thing.

Well - tonight...she had to run an errand..and then she had to run another one at the last second...so I came with her...as did her fiance. We were going to drop him off before we went for coffee..but he said that he'd come with us since we were driving right by 'our' coffee place anyways.

He had no idea what he was getting himself into.

After eating some food and drinking his drink...we'd barely made a dint into our drinks OR or conversation..and he was staring at us like we were crazy...as if he couldn't believe that this was ACTUALLY what we did when we said we were going for coffee.

I'm pretty sure he thought that we were going to some wild crazy party whenever we said we were having coffee...and just wanted to check up on us. But no...it's what we do.

After 15-20 minutes he was like..yeaaaaaaaah...we either need to leave or I need to walk home...I'm way too bored for this...so we headed on back to their place where Rhi and I continued our marathon chats and warm drinks..while he zombied out via videogames.

I don't think that he'll be crashing anymore of our coffee dates in the near future...ha! There are just some things in life that the opposite sex doesn't seem to be able to understand...and evidentally women's coffee dates may be one of those things.
