Shake 137: Revenge plans

August 20, 2010

Me, Museum of Sydney (Australia), 2010

As you know, my local cafe are like my family, so they can get pretty cheeky sometimes. Chai, the barista’s latest trick is to yell at the top of his voice “Snowdomes, your coffee with FIVE sugars is ready!”, at which point the whole cafe turns and looks at me in shock and sometimes disgust. Today, I heard someone whisper to another person about a stick-skinny girl they knew who took six sugars and were sure she was on something else too. And as much as I gingerly try to deny it, the crowd just raise their eyebrows. I need to hatch a revenge plan.

On a less sinister note, I love these domes that let you insert your own photo. I bought this one after a fun day out with Cookie and Newfie just last month at the Museum of Sydney, so this photo is reserved for them!
