Barista: Welcome to Starbucks, how may I help you?
My mom: I’d like a tall hot chocolate and a double tall nonfat decaf Marble Mocha Macchiatto.
Barista: Okay! So I’ve got a double tall nonfat decaf Marble Mocha Macchiatto. Is that all for you today?
Mom: …and a tall hot chocolate as well.
Barista: Right! A tall hot chocolate and a double tall nonfat Marble Mocha Macchiatto?
Mom: Is that “decaf”? I’d like the Macchiatto decaf, please.
Barista: No problem! So that’s a tall hot chocolate and a grande nonfat extra hot Caramel Macchiatto. Anything else for you today?
Thea: collapses in fits of laughter.
Mom (accepting defeat): No thank you, that’ll be all.
