INTERIOR, DAY-We open on an espresso bar in a trendy part of town. Two baristas are talking shop.
Neil- Hey, you bloggin'?
Alice-No, I'm Alice.
Neil-Ha ha. Hmmmm. I'm hungry, I feel like a sandwich.
Alice-Well you don't look like one.
(They both laugh hysterically)
Neil-You know it's days like this that I wish would never end. Loopy Fridays.
Alice-Rhymes with LIE-days.
Neil-Yeah, ha ha, or PIE-days.
Alice-Fridays are great.....they're like when you come to the end of a really long tunnel, and then the other side is a huge open field and all you get to do is relax on this big green lawn of a weekend......yeah, that's Friday for ya.
Neil-Wow, you just metaphorically metamorphosised my mind.
Alice-That's what great coffee will do to you.
(At this moment a regular customer who has been listening the entire time interjects)
Customer-I do believe that is a simile.
Alice-Yeah, well, that's what great coffee will do to you. It makes you smarter.
