Coffee Shop Blues

There goes Eileen again. Don’t look. Don’t look up. Don’t you dare look up. Off to tennis doubles with your new best friend, Eileen? Don’t care. Couldn’t care less. Break a leg, Eileen.

  6. Loved the "doubles" theme. Friendships/relationships can swing back and forth all the time, can't they? You captured the sense of betrayal very well, Kymm!
