Brian’s Week

For day 13 of Writing 101 the idea was to tell a story through a series of vignettes. I’m not sure if I’ve managed this or not (being a little uncertain about what constitutes a vignette), but nonetheless I present the following story:

Brian’s Week

Monday morning already? What happened to the weekend?

Really all I need is another coffee.

Why does she set her alarm for five? There’s no earthly reason why she should get up so early. I’m so tired. But I’ll never get back to sleep now.

This coffee is really bad. Why would they serve this? Surely the best thing about a training day is the coffee should be half decent. And the less said about the biscuits the better.

This is the end.

Maybe I should go for that drink. What harm could it do?

I’m late! I can’t believe I overslept. Why did she turn her bloody alarm off?

I need coffee.

Is this all there is? This is what I’ve been working so hard for?

I’m bored. I’m so bored.

Not sure I can face the gym tonight. Maybe I’ll get a takeaway.

After you take into consideration my monthly bills, I spend an alarming percentage of my remaining income on coffee.

I can’t sleep. Why can’t I sleep?

I really like coffee.

Is is morning again? When is it Friday?

I should really work on my CV.

I need to buy that shirt. That is an awesome shirt. I will look good in that.

Have I had my five a day? I drink more cups of coffee per day than I eat vegetables.

I do like coffee.

Is there really another meeting today?

I think this shirt makes me look fat. I’m not wearing it again.

Maybe I should go to the gym. But there is football on the telly tonight. I don’t want to miss that. I’ll go to the gym tomorrow.

The question is; can I afford not to buy that jacket?

I’m not really sure why I do this. I think I’m probably better than this. Maybe I should do something about it.

It’s Friday! I’m so happy!

    If it means anything, coffee does come from beans… kind of a vegetable

    “I can’t sleep. Why can’t I sleep?

    I really like coffee.”

    I laughed out loud. There’s so much I can relate to here.

    LOL! Why can’t I sleep??? When I ask my husband that, his answer is always “because, coffee!”

    You sound a little grumpy. Maybe you need another cup of coffee to calm you down.
