If I asked for a cup of coffee, someone would search for the double meaning.


So there I was flexing my coffee muscles with a co-worker discussing whose coffee is better . . . he had somebitter dark brewed winter blend and I had nicely balanced fresh ground appledumpling.  Clearly, I had the superiorcup o’ joe.

Obviously.

Until he said, “that’s girlie coffee.”

Wait  . . .what?? 



I never really thought about it, but I would assume thatcoffee was gender neutral.  I mean, okay,you can have some hipster barista whip up a floofy concoction that could lean maybekinda towards the feminine.  Maybe.

So, I asked him, “What would you define as ‘girlie’ coffee?”

He said, “you know, those flavored ones; hazelnut,vanilla.  I want to taste coffee when I drink my coffee.”

Of course now I’m offended. Yes, I’m a girl . . . but, dammit, I like my golden French toast brew!  And, now I have to worry weather or notsomeone will think I’m a frilly pretty-in-pink sorority chick just because ofmy coffee.

Thinking I might be able to snag him with the condiments headded to his java . . .  you know, like,sugar, syrups . . . whipped cream.  So, I asked him, “What’s your favoriteway to drink coffee.”

Him, “I love a good Latte`”

Him . . . snagged!

“Oh, yeah and that’s not girlie”, says I.

“I’m French. Of course I like latte.”



French . . .

. . . man . . .  

. . . latte.

I WIN!
