Wednesday’s Words

18 Aug

We stand in line at the espresso bar
waiting our turn.
In a bored voice you wonder
at the fact that good
service is so hard to find.
I wonder why they blow steam into every
drink they serve, even coffee.
Must be for special effects.
Also makes it easier to charge six bucks
for a cup of hot chocolate.
I must have thought that out loud
because everyone looks at me strangely.
You breathe loud air through your nose in exasperation.
Our turn finally comes and you order
a café latte, non-fat with a dash of cinnamon
and chocolate sprinkles.
I order a glass of water, easy on the steam.

    This one made me laugh…I am sometimes guilty of thinking outloud to the chagrin of my friends…thanks for the post.
