Basically one writes about what they would discuss if they met a friend for coffee. Any thoughts or concerns are shared and it is an enjoyable way to open up about what is on your mind.
If we met for coffee I’d tell you that I’m so grateful for the rain we have been getting. The water situation is really worrying and watching every drop we use during the day is tiring.
I’d tell you that I’m trying very hard to get fit and not use the cold weather as an excuse to skip gym. I’ve been cycling lately and enjoy it. I rode 40 km’s the other day and shocked myself because I was so certain I didn’t have the energy.
I’d share with you that my germ aversion is very much there at the moment and is causing me to feel stressed. We all have things we like to avoid but unlike my phobia of heights and snakes, avoiding germs is tricky. I get very irritated when sick people don’t just stay home and recover – I find it disrespectful that FOMO for a party/dinner/get together is more important to them than other people’s health. Also being sympathetic is not always my first thought – I hope I don’t catch anything or better keep my distance – is more likely what I’m thinking when someone is ill and drags themself to the office or to a get together. Also coughing without putting your hand in front of your mouth is disgusting and I find it extremely selfish.
As we enjoy our coffee I’ll admit that I think I’m becoming more of an introvert as I get older. I also don’t have time for drama and I am avoiding people who like to stir and cause trouble because life is too short. Being an introvert means that I don’t appreciate people forcing their way into my personal space and I despise having my hair touched and stroked by people who think I’m a human version of their cat.
After we finish drinking and get the bill, I’ll tell you how much I love My Kitchen Rules Australia and how I cannot wait the next season of the South African My Kitchen Rules to start. I’m no chef but I enjoy cooking shows.
We’ll say goodbye and arrange to meet up for another coffee and catch up soon.
