Question Roulette

Question Roulette – Ordering Coffee

Three years ago I bought a book in Tampa which is meant to be a great for creative like minds and for the past three years I have made it my New Years Resolution to complete it. The book is called 642 Things To Write About by The San Francisco Writers Grotto. I never got round to writing many of them so what’s a better way then getting through them then writing a few as an article each week! Enjoy.

550. Extend a short interaction as long as possible.

” one coffee please “

” yes sure what one?”

“Hmmmm…what is the name of the one with no special fancy milk, just you know plain”

” a black coffee”

” yes that’s the one…but I want it fresh”

” an Americano?”

“What’s that?”

” it’s when you grind coffee beans and it’s fresh”

” oh yes then that please”

” ok what’s you name please?”


“What’s your name?”

“What does that matter I want a coffee”

” I need your name”


“Because I need to put it on the cup”

” I know it’s my drink because I ordered it”

” I know but I need your name”

” I don’t want to give it to you”

“I need your name”


“Get out”




551. Choose a person who interests you. Write about following the person home

I am not a stalker and I would not spend money to go to the states to follow someone I would want to actually go on holiday.



552. Write 10 new cheers for a high school cheerleading squad.
