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.
