Coffee Date

If we were having coffee right now…I’d ask your opinion about the tragic events in Paris and why the media gave no attention to a similar tragedy in Beirut. I’d want to know your thoughts about what the United States and other civilized countries in the world should do to fight these terrorists. I’d ask you if you ever worry about being a target when you’re in a public place or get on an airplane, because I do.

If we were having coffee right now…I’d talk about my job search and how I’m having a hard time deciding which jobs to apply to. Because I’m an “older” candidate with a work history, I want to be somewhat discriminating. I want to do something that I truly enjoy and is meaningful. I went back to school as an adult, so that I would be eligible for better jobs, but money isn’t the only criteria. I’m afraid I’ll apply and be hired for the wrong position and miss out on the right position. Good grief, how can I decide?

If we were having coffee right now…I’d want to know if you ever went on a cruise and, if so, do you recommend it as a great vacation? I’d also want to know if you’ve ever been to the Caribbean and, if so, which island you’d recommend. Same for Europe.

If we were having coffee right now…I’d want to know what you’re currently reading, who your favorite Th is, and if you feel movies ever do their books justice. Being an avid reader, I enjoy hearing about a good read. Same for movies; what have you seen lately that you can recommend?

If we were having coffee right now…I’d talk about all the projects I’d like to tackle:  organizing family photos, creating two scrapbooks, trying my hand at homemade cards, painting some furniture, and teaching myself some new skills through online resources.

If we were having coffee right now…I’d tell you that I started Couch Potato to 5K (again), but this time I’m hopeful that I can finish it, since I can run on my beloved beach and I have more spare time. I’d talk about how I want to join a gym, so that I can do weight training, as well. Then I’d ask your thoughts on gym memberships and see if I can convince you to join with me.

If we were having coffee right now…I’d ask about your life and family. I’d ask what important things you have going on and any special events coming up. Then I’d treat you to another coffee (or danish) because you’ve been such a great listener!

  1. If we were having coffee together, I refuse to talk about Paris. It’s too depressing. Especially all the survivor stories that are starting to come out now. 😥 heart-breaking!
    i’d tell you there’s no way i am joining a gym. Infact, i would convince not to join either. 😀
    Also, I read somewhere, that weight training is okay but better to use your own body weight than the dumb bells. Do push up and pull ups etc. Just thought I’d share with you. Ignore the advice if you don’t like (it’s free afterall)


    • Thank you for your comments…I never ignore advice; there might be something useful in it that I hadn’t considered before! I think it’s important to be a good listener, whether we take the advice or not. 🙂
