In the end, I needed the coffee..

Dropped my thesis at Uni today, for binding. (Cheers, whistles)

To celebrate, I decided to have a boutique coffee, a tall vanilla latte. Not something I have in real life and something that I associate with the only place I have ever had them, Uni.

There was a different lady behind the counter, presumably the normal staff had gone on holidays. The conversation went like this:

Me: Could I have a tall vanilla latte, please.
Her: Sure. Do you want tall or regular?
Me: Um...make it a regular tall.
Her: OK. So that will be with soy milk then?
Me: (Thinks) You can't milk a soy.
Me: (Says) Regular milk, please. Tall, if you have it.

As I walk out I think to myself: She only charged me for a tall latte.

I sip the drink. Sure enough, no vanilla.

I was a good coffee. Just as well. I needed it.


  1. I don't think people listen any more!!
    I hope it revived you.

  2. Have you noticed how many things, look like something else??

    Oh, & congrats on the Binding!

  3. A tall vanilla latte with no vanilla and soy milk... AUD 10 (assuming)....

    Sending in your thesis for binding... priceless.

  4. APPLAUSE FOR YOUR THESIS! Congratulations! A huge milestone.

    sigh. I hope I get mine done soon. I'm not having fun anymore.

  5. Congratulations on your thesis!

    And yes I know what you mean about coffee! There's layers of wonder the cashier forgets. Latte wise, I reckon Gloria Jeans does a nice macadamia latte. Their Irish creme, Hazelnut and Caramel is mediocre in comparison.

    Not sure if you are aware of Easyway the drink place (artificial flavouring diluted with water but concentrated with more sugar = highly addictive)! For me it's a challenge to order "honeydew blended ice with half pearls and half rainbow jelly, less sugar." I sure will be saying plenty of those over the duration of Summer!
