Task 10 on Writing 101 was to write a post as if I was catching up with my reader over a cup of coffee. It’s apparently quite a common thing to do in the blogosphere. It doesn’t really sound like my ‘cup of tea’ but I’ll give it a go…

I’ve read a few other bloggers’ takes on this idea, and it generally seems to be the rule that you begin each paragraph with the line “If I were meeting you for coffee…” or a variation thereof.

So I’m going to do that too.

Here goes…

If I were meeting you for coffee, I’d be checking that you’re actually paying. I’m not usually this stingy but I’ve been having a few cash flow issues lately. I’ll get them next time. I promise.

If I were meeting you for coffee, having verified that these beverages are on you, I’d be ordering something a touch more extravagant than usual. And maybe a cake.

If I were meeting you for coffee, I’d probably moan a bit about work. And maybe other mundane stuff. My life isn’t that interesting really.

If I were meeting you for coffee, I definitely wouldn’t be on my phone all of the time. I’m not that guy.

If I were meeting you for coffee, I’d probably listen to what you have to say, it’s not all about me after all.

Well that was pleasant, if a little brief.

We should definitely do it again sometime…

  1. If I were meeting you for coffee, I’d be thinking ‘He seems like a great listener, but this is could cost me a fortune, I hope he doesn’t order that expensive cake..’
