FFfAW-Mr. Dreamy

I work from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm everyday and only get 2 coffee breaks. One 15 minute break in the morning and another 15 minute break in the afternoon. Luckily, there is a coffee cafe in the building that I work.

That is where I met him. Him…the man of my dreams. The man that will take me away from this 9:00 to 5:00 horror.

I made sure to make a good impression on him. I found out that he works in one of the businesses in the building. I was excited to think that I would see him often during our coffee breaks.

Then one day he didn't show up. I searched and searched, to no avail. I was heartbroken. Where is Mr. Dreamy?

Then I found out the horrible news. He was fired.

My dream of Mr. Dreamy went down the drain along with a cup of cold coffee.

But this morning I met another Mr. Dreamy…

As they say, life goes on.

  1. This is funny PJ. It reminds me of a young girl starting out in the workforce and having crushes pretty much every day with no real substance to them, just for looks or him being nice. She’s doesn’t miss mr. dreamy when he’s gone so you get this sense that she’s flighty. Nice write!

  2. Like dreams…Mr. Dreamys can come and go in a hurry! You learn from experience though, and given time she will get to really decide what kind of person she wants to get serious with. Hopefully, one day she will probably find the real Mr. Dreamy! And, it will be worth the wait. Lovely story, Joy, and so real to life!

I would love to read your thoughts...
