GM! I started going through my posts from when I first started on here. I started with taking the Writing 101 course, didn’t know what it would lead to!! We were given topics each day and for this topic we were supposed to write about 2 opposing views. Hope you all don’t mind as I share a flashback from the past. Enjoy!
The restaurant was busy with its morning rush of customers. getting a bite to eat before rushing off to work. No one paid much notice to the 2 customers sitting at booths opposite of each other. They had ordered different meals, one was bacon and eggs with biscuits smothered in gravy. The other one had oatmeal and whole wheat toast. One thing they both did have, was a water glass that was half full, or was it half empty?? Listen in on their thoughts
“It is so freezing cold this morning, I should have stayed in bed under my warm covers!”
“Oh it is frosty this morning, but I love the change of seasons being in the air, the anticipation of something new. The chill in the air definitely helped me wake up quickly!”
“Can’t believe how heavy traffic was …had to wait forever for the car in front of me to move, don’t people realize I have places to go, people to meet. I can’t afford to be slowed down for anything!!”
” Traffic was definitely slow moving today, but I loved watching the Mom and her little boy on the sidewalk. They were deep in conversation, her boy was talking so excitedly, seeing the Mom caress the boy’s cheek…Oh it brought back memories of little Timmy…not so little anymore tho. I still can’t believe he is in college now! I got so caught up in the memories I didn’t realize that the light had turned green. Than I heard the horn beep behind me…oops!”
“Well look at the time, where is that slow waitress I need to pay my check and get out of here. Facing another day of drudgery, working so hard for so little money…UGH!”
“I hope my waitress has a good day, I noticed she seemed in a state of frenzy this morning. I think I will leave a little extra tip today to hopefully bring a smile to her face. I don’t make much at my job, but I do love to give, to make others happy. After all, isn’t that what life is about, spreading the joy.”
With those last thoughts the customers left, off to their different worlds. Their water glasses still sat on the table….they had told their story, now its up to you. Which glass are you going to be today ?
