Celebrity

painting by Edward Hopper

Edna Harper, star of stage and screen sat in a diner enjoying a quiet cup of coffee.

A man sitting at an adjacent seat made a double take, then began to stare at her. Here we go again, Edna thought to herself and tried not to respond to the man’s gaze.

“Excuse me,” the man said abuptly.

“Yes, I am Edna Harper,” she said curtly. “I am just trying to have a quiet drink without any fuss, if that’s okay with you.”

“Okay, Nice to meet you Edna,” the bemused man said. “But if it’s not to much trouble could you pass me the sugar if you’re not using it?”
