The morning sun shines brightly as Sally sits down in her favorite chair; her mouth watering as she enjoys the buttery aroma of the danish just delivered to her table.  Taking a sip from her coffee, she sees an incoming call from an unknown number.

"Hello." Hearing, but angered by a familiar voice, she asks, "What am I doing right this minute?  Are you kidding me? I’m trying to enjoy my coffee.  What do you want?  Yes, I’m alone. Why?  What?  Steve is breaking up with me?  You and he are what?  Well, isn't that special!  You call me... interrupt my morning and you have the nerve... or lack tell me that you stole my boy- friend?  No surprise... I always thought you were a backstabbing bitch. What? Don't call you that?  Really?  Well listen up... he’s yours!  All he's got going for him is that he’s in pre-med. Also I heard something I’m sure he’d like to know. Your charming Steve... the knight in tarnished armor, will certainly want to know you have an STD.  I'm betting he’ll kick your infected ass to the curb with that news.  I'm done... gotta make a call... goodbye loser!”
“Good Coffee.”

I could just imagine sitting near this person in the coffee shop and hearing the one-sided conversation, and it seemed so real. This was so great to read, I really enjoyed it and the last line was really good.
