Falling in Love While Waiting for the Coffee to Cool
A Story by Cindy Johnson
Memphis Johnson and Cindy Reily were sitting in the waiting room of All Transmissions and Automotive in Tacoma, Washington drinking coffee. Memphis’ lifted pickup truck was in getting an oil change/lube and Cindy’s Jetta was in for some routine, scheduled maintenance.
“Come here often?” asked Memphis.
“Is that a pickup line?” replied Cindy pouring herself another cup of coffee.
“Well, I do like pickups . . . uh, trucks, do you like pickup trucks?” asked Memphis, “because I sure do.”
“Give me a good reliable car like my Jetta any day,” replied Cindy.
“One thing I can tell you is I prefer strong coffee to some of those fancy blends now a days,” said Memphis.
“I like flavoured creamer in my coffee,” said Cindy, “but if I’m heading out to work the night shift, I’ll take any kind of coffee in a cup.”
“So how come you’re the one bringing in your car to the shop?” asked Memphis, “I come here often enough to make improvements to my trucks and I don’t usually see a woman waiting, at least not one as pretty as you.”
"Been saving that line for while?” asked Cindy, “Listen, Cowboy Bob, you're not one of those macho wannabes are you?"
"Okay, Cinderelli I didn't just come out of the Puyallup Pumpkin patch. I’ve been known to take women out for a drink or a nice meal every now and then.”
“Whoa, and you’re still single?” retorted Cindy.
“Last I checked that wasn’t a crime in Tacoma,” replied Memphis.
“You’re right, it isn’t,” said Cindy, “just checking that you didn’t have a wife or a girlfriend who might not appreciate it if I were to flirt back a little.”
“Completely, unattached,” said Memphis, “and should I be worried about a man in your life?”
“I too am completely unattached,” said Cindy, “I’m waiting to fall in love with the right man.”
“And what if I could be him?” said Memphis, “Cinderelli didn’t know she would lose her glass slipper at a ball and find Prince Charming. What if it is possible to fall in love in a waiting room at an auto shop like All Transmissions.”
“Oh, well . . . if love is going to happen,” said Cindy, “I think we had better start over. I’m Cindy Reily, not Cinderrelli. I work shifts at the reception desk at the new hotel by Sea-Tac.”
“I know. I saw your name tag. I’m Memphis Johnson, real estate agent and truck enthusiast.”
“You’re a real estate agent?” asked Cindy.
“Appearances can be deceiving,” replied Memphis, “it’s my day off and I think sitting here drinking coffee at All Transmissions and Automotive turned out to be a great way to spend it. How about an early dinner at the Adriatic Grill, Cindy?”
“I’d like that,” she replied, “They’re close by and I love their creamy polenta.”
Memphis smiled, and said “Oh, yeah. Italian grits . . . and then maybe dessert and coffee . . . and fancy, flavored creamer.”
“Oh, you’re smooth, you are, you are,” grinned Cindy.
