Rap was on it's dawn, I could guess from the stripling jamming to it who was sitting on the table adjacent to me. I don't usually like to interfere in people's lives but when I'm drained off my muse, I tend to look around and weave backstories of people. It doesn't always work but at least it kept the writer in me alive.
Like that woman with a permed hair fringed leather jacket, must be a singer or maybe she's trying keep up with the time. Or that man. With. Over-worn denims? They called them 'acid-washed' denims. I guessed he must be crazy. Why would you spend money on a piece of cloth that already looks old and is torn. Anyway, I didn't think much about him as I had constant urge to change my understudies. Okay, maybe she's a thief. hmmm.......he must have had a fight with with his girlfriend. I guess her date didn't show up. Is he gonna eat that. What are you wearing, dear? Oh this coffee is amazing. What's now? Oh there's a woman sitting on my next table. hmmm......she's Audrey Hepburn. Okay..........wait Audrey Hepburn? What? What is she doing here? Did they start to put meth in coffee?
You might think I overreacted but imagine, going to your regular coffee shop like any other day and finding Audrey Hepburn! Without any bouncers. That was probably because nobody seemed to recognize her. Or maybe everyone believed they were hallucinating. I had to do something. I knew that but what? And how? I wasn't even wearing decent clothes, what would she think of me? I knew I wasn't gonna meet her again, that was my last chance. I engulfed coffee with my eyes fixed at her table. As the caffeine kicked in, I stood up and walked to her.
"Excuse me ma'am, I'm so sorry to disturb you but I'm your great admirer, ma'am and I was hoping to get a autograph, ma'am." I uttered with the best sound I could speak.
"I appreciate your appreciation. Sure I'll give you an autograph, sir!" Miss Audrey replied. To me. And I got her autograph. But more than that I got to be a part of her legendary life; even if for a minute. And some etiquette lessons by Audrey Hepburn herself!
