arms flapping. November 11, 2008

This young guy came up to the counter today, half-flapping, half-dancing his arms up and down, I suppose to the “beat” of the jazz piano music playing, and ordered a grande coffee.  I said ok, and would you like to try a sample of our gingersnap latte? [sitting in front of us on a platter].

“NO.  I DON’T LIKE CREAM AND SUGAR IN MY COFFEE.” [arms flapping, head bobbing to the beat.]

“Ok!  Well, that’s all right.  But I will say, the samples are really good.  Are you sure?”


[With a look of amusement] “Ok. Would you like to try a gingersnap latte?”



[With a swagger as he swoops up his coffee and dances away from the counter]
