The Morning After

Post by munsi »

I wake with the worst hangover of my life, and discover I’m wearing a Starbucks uniform.

I don’t remember much about last night, an evening, a bar, a group of friendly strangers, rounds of Jager shots and, past that, nothing at all until this moment…

I find the note by my bed and know what it will say even before I open it.

“Your shift begins at three.” It reads, along with an address.

“Well,” I think to myself, resigned to my fate and rising to prepare myself for my new job, “it would appear I have been French-Press ganged.”

You've fallen on the heavy cringe side of puns there, Munsi. :lol:

I was half expecting you to throw in the'"getting up in the dead of night' joke

That he needs to go 'raise hell' and help 'raise the zombies from their slumber' via the magic of coffee. Oh dear. See, this is me getting carried away with puns.
