It was 6 o'clock in the morning when Original Cindy winced at the slight, faint, early morning sunlight illuminating through the curtains. "Whoeva wanted me to wake up at this time in the morning's crazy. God knows I don't clock into Jam Pony for another two hours," she mumbled, face plowing back into the pillow.
A night full of partying--what's a girl to do? Horrible enough she didn't remember a thing, nor how she got back home. All she remembers is some fine mami giving Cindy what she wanted the most--attention. Oohwee.
Jondy was in the kitchen, making coffee and toast in the kitchen. Her attention was momentarily distracted when she heard Original Cindy muttering about the crazy hour of the morning before planting her face back into her pillow.
"Morning, sunshine," Jondy called out cheerfully, busying herself with breakfast again.
Overhearing Jondy's comment, she couldn't help herself but say, "I cannot believe you're this happy in the morning..." Remembering how Max was always the last to 'sleep' when in reality, she never did sleep.. therefore the first to 'wake up.' Never understood why, really. They all tended to be up and atom .. every second of the day.
Original Cindy threw the covers over her head, a strong hangover came over her. "I am never doing that again...." What that was, who knows. But she got back safe and sound.
Jondy laughed, then poured herself a mug of coffee, adding cream and sugar and mixing it with a spoon, then taking a plate and catching the burnt whole wheat toast as it came out of the toaster and started to butter it.
"'That'? Was that her name?," Jondy said innocently. "By the way, there's coffee and toast out here once you're up for it."
"Ha-Ha. Very funny, Jondy." Good question, Original Cindy thought. Ah. Too much thinking. It hurts. "Hey Boo... you don't so happen to have asprin, now do you? Or perhaps the knowabouts where I can get a bloody mary... it'll much be appreciated."
She threw the covers off of her and slid out of bed heading towards the kitchen--still looking like a zombie.
"I thought so." Jondy set aside her mug and went into the bathroom to retrieve the asprin, opening the bottle and tapping out a couple of the pills into her palm.
"And is way too early for you to be drinking again, so instead, you get asprin and coffee," she said, grabbing a plate and placing the pills on it, then grabbing a mug from one of the cabinets and getting Original Cindy some coffee. She eyed her roommate - she was putting on a playful attitude, but she was still concerned.
"I'll be the first to let you know that the perfect cure for a hangover is a bloody mary .. people just don't know how to make it right, so it furthers on the process of--" Original Cindy pointing to her head groggily finished her thought, "this..."
She gave Jondy a slight smile, she wished it could have been bigger but it wasn't going to happen in her condition, "Thanks Jondy." She managed to slur out before sipping her coffee not noticing it had no sugar. She winced at it's bitter taste. "Gah! Pass the sugar and creamer, please."
Cindy eyed the asprin, "Oh! Thanks for this, Boo."
"I know the right way to make a bloody mary - bartender, remember?," Jondy said, winking at her roommate. "But we don't have the ingridents here and I think you have work in about three hours."
She smiled back, then laughed and pushed the creamer and sugar towards her. "Help yourself. And you're welcome. Anything else you want or need?," she asked as she broke off a piece of her toast and popped it into her mouth.
Cindy added cream and sugar to her cup of bitter black coffee and stirred the ingredients to find herself with a perfect cup of coffee. Smelling the sweet aroma of the concoction she had created, she took a sip.
"Nah, I'm good, suga. I'm sure after this cup .. and the next .. I'll be bouncing off the walls not being able to contain myself before work," OC said popping the pills into her mouth and grabbed a piece of toast, spreading jam all over it.
She looked up at Jondy, "Who are you going to beat in pool and do the goods with tonight?" She smiled deviously, knowing she'd be giving Jondy a dose of her own medicine--of course not out of spite, fun.
Jondy laughed again. "And then the sugar will wear off and you'll want to take a nap in between runs." She took another sip of her coffee.
She raised an eyebrow, but shrugged, sipping her coffee again. "Hopefully the same guy," she said casually.
Only he doesn't seem to want to do the goods with me.
Cindy shrugged, "Normal can afford to let a messenger go for a day, don't trip. He'll bitch .. but that's Normal. Can't do much there," she said as she took a bite of her toast. "See you at Crash tonight? ..With the same guy..?"
Jondy nodded. "It's what bosses do, bitch about their employees and the work they should be doing."
She sipped more of her coffee, looking thoughtful. "You'll see me at Crash, but I don't know if he'll be there - he might be working at TC."
She raised an eyebrow at Original Cindy again, grinning a little wickedly. "Will 'That' be there again tonight?"
She shrugged, she didn't want Jondy to know that she, herself had no idea who 'That' was. Hopefully they'll be there. Hopefully.
"If it's meant to be, yeah.. I guess. If not, no," she nodded. She ate the last bit of her toast. "Thanks for the aspirin, Boo. It's really starting to kick in. Who woulda thought .. caffeine with another dose of drug. Mm-mmgood." OC stood up, carrying her dish and cup to the sink to rinse it out.
"Aiight, I'ma get a lil' bit more shut-eye before I head on over to JamPony, you be good now, Jondy!" Cindy winked at her roommate before disappearing into her side of the apartment.
"Always am," Jondy said, winking back at OC and raising her coffee mug to her in a mock salute before turning her attention to the newspaper.
