If We Were Having Coffee…

If We Were Having Coffee…

Last month, the lovely Beth from Adventure and Anxiety tagged me in the If We Were Having coffee tag and I’ve finally got around to doing it! I love the idea of this post because it’s a chance for me to have a bit of a ramble and tell you the things I would if we were having coffee.

Read Beth’s post here!

If we were having coffee…

the first thing I would do is order a flat white. They’re my favourite because even though I’m very partial to a standard Americano with no milk, I love the slight bitterness that comes from a flat white. I’m pretty sure my blood is 90% caffeine and I’m a bit of a coffee snob so if you were ordering a latte I’d probably be judging you for basically drinking a cup of milk.

If we were having coffee…

I’d want to ask you what your favourite true crime stories are. It’s highly unlikely that I’d actually ask you, for fear of sounding like a serial killer myself, but I’d definitely want to. My favourite cases are JonBenet and the Staircase murder. (Please tell me yours in the comments!)

If we were having coffee…

I’d probably tell you that I speak 4 languages. I’m not very often proud of myself but that’s one thing I am proud of. I’d want to know what languages you know and I’d likely bore you to death about Germany.

If we were having coffee…

I’d want to know whether you’re a cat or dog person. (I’d be hoping for the latter but could cope with either answer). I’d want to know your favourite breeds and whether you have any dogs and be all soppy and swap pics.

If we were having coffee…

I’d want to talk about philosophy. Small talk isn’t really my thing so I’d want to know what you think happens after we die, why you think we’re here, your favourite philosopher, whether you really think we’ll ever reach the point of being the Übermensch, why people do the things they do, whether there actually are more dead people in the sea than on land (someone told me this once and it’s bothered me every since). Basically, I’d want to get deep with you pretty quickly.

If we were having coffee…

I’d let you do most of the talking. I’d probably cause some awkward silences but if you’re fine with that then actually do hit me up for coffee and we can talk about serial killers, books and er, coffee.

I’m tagging these 5 lovely people because I’d love to have a real life coffee with them: GwennanShannon, SrnaJosh and Lauren.

    This is such a cute little tag, oh my gosh! I love that you admit to being a coffee snob, hahah. You’d hate me though because I don’t actually drink coffee .. Oops. Also, I’m DEFINITELY a dog person – big dogs all the way!

    With love, Vee x
