Lady Marmalade Coffee.

Yesterday morning, a friend, Gilles, texted me to ask if I’d like a coffee as he was stopping by Starbucks before coming to the salon.


So I texted him my Square Piece order:

Please and thanks!  Tall, extra hot, sugar free, soy, cinnamon dolce latte, w/whip.  Not that I’m specific or anything… Let me know what I owe you.

Then I informed Brian of both this good deed and my list.

Me, “I sent him the list.”

Brian, “You didn’t.”

Me, “Yeah!”

Brian, “Ugh.  I used to hate getting coffees for you.”

Me, “That’s cause you didn’t have the list.”

Brian, “It’s always like, ‘Mocha pinka chocha latte half-caff with organic milk 2% blah blah blah with whip sugar-free skinny chowka machiato la ta ta…'”

At this point, it really sounds like he’s singing “Lady Marmalade.”

And so I pointed that out.

Brian, “It does.  Veelee voos cookay ameggoi… veelee vous coushee amey wah-ha-ha…. mocha chocha la ta ta…  Rrrrrhhooooo la ta ta.  That’s the death metal version.”

I really wish you could hear Brian make up French.  It’s A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.

“…ce swa ce swa… veelay vou … eeeEeeEeeeEeee…”

You’re welcome, friends, you’re welcome.

By the way, Gilles was kind enough to ‘gift’ me the coffee.  (It’s always brilliant to cheer up your hairstylist.)  Thanks, Gilles!

(PS – Listening to Brian read back this post is hysterical.  Apparently my interpretation of his French isn’t phonetic enough for him to create an accurate encore.)
