Write for Ten

As I sip my espresso, i see in the corner of my eye a jogger in blue. Day-old snow covers the sidewalk. They have turned brown and gray from foot traffic. Another jogger runs by. I sip my espresso.

I’m sitting alone in Crepes Parissienes in the middle of the afternoon with my iPhone for my companion. I have been revising a research paper all day. I started feeling sleepy an hour ago, so I took a lonely jaunt here. The cafe is warm. I’m facing the vertical windows. Fellow coffee drinkers and the friendly kitchen staff are behind me. I hear them talking, but their conversations blend together.

I sip my espresso again. I may have to write this same sentence again 10 more times given the amount I got. For $1.66, I got a great deal.
