It's 09:26, I'm supposed to be in college doing an exam,probably! But instead I am sitting in Starbucks. It's far too warm in here and the venti caramel hot chocolate with a mountain of cream on top in front of me ain't helping. It's quiet, three people are queuing, one of them a man is looking a bit rough,thought i seen him downing a can of booze before he came in. Coffee and booze?Doesn't sound too good at ten in the morning. The Indian girl with the Irish accent behind the counter is just finished serving him. His face ain't so rough looking on second inspection it's just his clothes. They look like they belong in a charity shop or a Russian store. perhaps he is Russian...or a charity shop but then it hits me. A Traveler! Not the bare knuckle boxing caravan type but the off to see the world and live outta what's in my pockets type of guy,i like it. Huge guy walks in built like a brick shit house. The shaved head body builder type but obviously not too serious about it,I cant imagine anything you can buy in a Starbucks to be a good source of protein or to be beneficial to your health in any way. Didn't expect him to be Irish. I think i have seen him around before but can't quite put my finger on it, that or he just has a generic face. Man and woman walk in with a new born baby, the mans bald and looks about thirty five if I'm honest, too old for kids in my opinion. When the kids ten he`ll be fourty five, that's basically fifty. The woman doesn't look any better but she did just push another human out of her recently so we'll give her the benefit of the doubt ,thirty three. The woman makes a face at the baby and i can hear it laughing,maybe it ain't new born or else its just a really fast learner. I suddenly realise how much i would rather be in the company of the woman i love than here,as i write her name the sun comes out,in more ways than one. Old women shouldn't wear heavy make up and lipstick for two reasons: The first is because it's scary and the second is because it makes them look like hookers. Two depressed looking men stare at the couple with the new born baby. Probably thinking how that guys life is fucked now since the little bundle of joy popped out. I take back what i said about the old women,they're American of course they wear heavy make up. The business man closest to me isn't married,divorce comes to mind. He looks at me and then at the journal, maybe he can read upside down? That's more plausible than him actually being able to read my handwriting.
