Classic and Cool

sunny afternoon, peaceful cafe, cool drink..
and a book to read

~super classic~

In the story or film we used to see one or two scene people sitting in cafe, 
enjoying afternoon breeze.. have some drink and read book (usually novel).
Then their friend came, give cute kiss, sat together, having a chat and laugh...
Good scene isn't it...

Then a same questions came across to me, what I did while I sit in cafe with cup of drink in front of me.

what I can remember if I sit in cafe, soon after I order drink  I will order food too I will busy look for power plug. 
Then open my laptop and do my assignment, read travel blog, browse cheap ticket, play with my phone
Or if I don't bring my laptop I will read my study case followed by :-

- Order fries and munch it
- Take picture of food or drink I order
- Play with instagram
- Upload food picture on facebook, foursquare, twitter any social network I can register.
- Have chat messenger with my sister

If I start bored with whatever keep me busy, I will start stare at people walk around
or even the waitress. Tried to find their mistakes and start make a joke about them.

I can't imagine what I'm going to do if someone ask me to try to be like that, with cup of latte and novel on my hand.
No smartphone, no laptop, no iPad, no tablet, and no friends to talk with.
What I'm gonna do....????

Sit nicely, sip coffee slowly and concentrate read book..

could I...? LOL...

I guess I am way too misbehave to be classic and cool like that.

Talk about reading book or novel, there was a time where I also spent lot of time read book and novel.
But then I start stop read them slowly, because my curiousness kill myself and totally not good for me.
Once I read book and get involved with the story, I would not stop until I get them done.
Doesn't matter how thick that bastard is, I will keep read until I know what happen.
I can read 10 cm thick book in two days.

Worse is if the novel have series 1-2-3 -4 and so on..
I could buy the whole series, just to get to know whats next.

too much money invested on not so cheap paper
too much time invested just to know what's next
and I lost lot of time to enjoy other thing..
way to nerd sit in reading room, headache and sore eyes drugged by book 

now I stop touch thick book,
except my study book (but that is not interesting at all).....

how you try to kill your addiction...?
