I love a cup of coffee made with milk, skimmed this time of year! whenever we'd go for picnics Dad would make a flask of it, with sugar too. A real treat and it still evokes very fond childhood memories
I recently discovered that if I want such a thing at work (in the very trendy coffee bar that the company subsidise for employees) I need to:
A) First speak to the bank manager about a loan
B) Give myself 40 minutes to wait in the queue and a further 40 minutes for the 'creation'
C) Request a 'skinny, flat, wet latte, with extra heat' - this MUST be said quickly, and with conviction otherwise they ask you to repeat it and magically make you feel like a complete wally.
D) Remember to bring a wheelbarrow to carry the bucket sized paper cup back to my desk.
E) Remeber to bring oven gloves to limit the burn from the paper cup which has no handle.
F) Arrive back at my desk to face the crowd of angry faces because i didn't offer to get a 'round' in (this would mean a mortgage and not a loan).
G) Drink said concoction - every last drop to get my monies worth, and feel bloated and sick for 5 hours due to over consumption.
H) Vow never to get another coffee from the trendy cafe bar at work.
