Writing Wednesdays: My Very First Meme

I'm not even really sure what a "meme" is, but I've been tagged in one by the lovely Hope Roberson. Here's how it works, apparently:

  1. Go to page 77 of your current WiP
  2. Go to line 7
  3. Copy down the next seven lines or paragraphs and post them as they're written
  4. Tag 7 authors and let them know :)
I'm not sure they're the best seven lines, but I'm following the rules! So here, without further ado, is my Lucky Seven post:

Craig went up to the counter to order our coffee and I couldn’t help but stare at him. He was leaning against the counter, one leg bent at the knee, and the girl at the register was so nervous she dropped Craig’s money twice. "Keep the change," Craig said with a smile. When he walked away the girl rolled her eyes at her own clumsiness. 

“Here you go.” Craig handed me a mug and we sipped our coffee in silence. I tried to let my eyes wander casually around the room, but they kept returning to Craig’s perfect face. Every time our eyes met, Craig held my gaze until I looked away.  

Now I'm supposed to tag seven other people. I don't have a huge circle of writing friends, so I apologize if some of you have already been tagged. Please feel free to ignore at will!

Apparently Craig is hot enough to inspire clumsiness, nicely done! I'd love to hear more about Craig ;)

Definitely hot enough to cause clumsiness - but kind of a jerk, too. Because the hot ones are always jerks, right? :) He comes around eventually.
