The tops of the stools are covered with blue vinyl, each one has four black metal legs. A man in front of me sits in this coffee shop full of young melbournians, planning trips, getting excited about shows. This man is balding, he is 30 years older than everyone else in here. His shorts are pink and his shirt is striped. He leans over onto the table in front of him, he must be used to stooping with a stature like that. He is too big for all of this furniture. His coffee cup is dwarfed by his hands. I can't believe how small everyone else in here is. Do you spell colours with a u? The book I am reading matches the old mans pants, and the blue stool top. It is summer outside, the ground is too hot to walk on without shoes, the humidity is mildly stifaling.
