STRANGERS | FROWNERS NEVER WIN.

How is your day going?
I asked the barista.

Okay, I guess.
she said.
Except I'm still trying to shake this nasty, hacking, gross cold I've had for the last week.

That's no fun!
I said.

It's okay,
she coughed with a smile.
Thanks for asking and I'll have your drink up in a minute.

Thanks!
I sighed with a smile.
