‘we’re not enemies, we just disagree’
– lyrics from ‘is this it’, the strokes
Her: Would you like a coffee?
Him: Yes please, I’ll fix it.
– He did. And yet, he didn’t.
Her: Time for another coffee?
Him: I’d love another, but I’ll miss my train.
Her: Well. Never mind.
– He didn’t. The train was late. He could have. Would it have made any difference?
Him: No. Not really.
(Her: Well. Never mind.)

This post was written in response to the prompt for Day 11 of the WordPress Writing 101 course in which we were invited, in one way or another, to ‘update your readers over a cup of coffee’. As ever, I tried my best to stick to the prompt, and this time, I think I almost made it. And, as they say in the movies, ‘any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental.’
