Turns out, this coffee shop I go to hired a new barista, who by the way is the most beautiful girl I've ever seen. I think I'm in love.

Lock eyes with her from across the room. I’ve read about this and seen it in movies. It’s a classic.

You think that’ll work in real life?

Steve
@SteveNeedsAJob

I don’t joke about this stuff, man. These are tried and tested; backed by facts. Do it tomorrow.

Ohmygod. I think some dude was trying to burn holes on my head.

Come to think of it, I think he was the weird guy from yesterday. Fred? Frank?

Okay, so, Weird Dude's not so bad. He's just really weird...and awkward.

@mfrancis0115

Her: Here's your drink.

Me: um, you're really pretty... (I swear I didn't know why I said that out loud)

Chloe's making me her favorite coffee! Whatever it is, I bet it's good.

I made two important discoveries today: 1) Chloe likes cinnamon in her coffee 2)I'm allergic to cinnamon
