sunny.v totally nailed that comment and she's so right. This piece, well I forgot the prompt, but reading it is just so eye-opening. I love your tone here, suggestively condescending with a hint of respite, though it's gentle and barely there. I really adore that. I don't drink coffee since my parents scared me when I was younger, saying caffeine will make me short (and I'm already short enough), so now I just have this stigma and deflective attitude towards it.
okay so i read the prompt upon looking at this and i was like. cringe, i've gotta admit. i have preferences and things, and i'm almost always unimpressed when people try to be "quirky" and show how human behaviors are oh-so whack. but THIS PIECE!! you killed it, my dear. slayed it. showed up to the block. you make your voice so coy and questioning yet smug that i'm like oooh. coffee? maybe that IS odd. you've also got this enigmatic air written in that i'm like hnghhdhdhshdsbs for. i think maybe my bias towards writing about the mundane seeped into how much i like this piece because you're like "coffee filters...discarded" and im like whew. i can't drink coffee much/have anything caffeinated since my insomnia is bad enough that caffeine will just worsen it, but now im like HA. who's missing out now, tree haters? anyways. you slayed this prompt, mon ami!!
Need more help?
