So, Ah’m sitting in this café…

Old guy with a beard

Plinky.com asked me to describe a fictional conversation using a jumpy, nervous style.

So, Ah'm sitting in this café watching the world go by, pounding down a sweet treat and mah fourth cup of…

Huh?

What was that?

Wait a minute, Ah just…

Kids! Noisy, obnoxious little…

Where was Ah? Oh, yeah… Ah'm sitting in this café watching the world go by, pounding down a…

Ah told ya that, right?
