Yesterday I stopped for lunch at a rural cafe. One of the farmers drove up in his huge piece of farm equipment. It was actually taller than the building. I chose to sit in a booth because all of the stools at the counter were taken by farmer's stopping by for a bite to eat.
The waitress brought me my ice tea. Two young people came in and were seated in the booth behind me. Here's the ensuing conversation.
I'll just call this "Overheard on the Prairie".
Waitress: Hi. Can I start you off with something to drink?
1st customer: Yes, I'll have a Caramel Macchiato. Make that a Grande....ummm, with an extra shot.
2nd customer: A Venti Chai with soy milk.
Waitress: (Sound of crickets chirping)
Customers: (Giving each other the look of ... what's up?)
Waitress: Ummm. What's that? (She's thinking they're speaking a foreign language. YEAH...It's Fritalian)
1st customer: You know, macchiato??
Waitress: We have coffee or hot chocolate.
2nd customer: Oh. WHATEVER.
Heh, hey....just wait till they get to the menu.
NOTE: Just a reminder that the apron tutorial will be tomorrow. I'm going to show you how to make an apron from a men's dress shirt.!
