I was excited to try a new cafe that I had read about on Twitter.
IN JULI’S HEAD: They have Bom Bons! Cardamom White Chocolates! Chilli Mochachinos!
WHAT JULI REALLY SAYS: [breezily, to BARISTA] I read about your cafe on Twitter.
BARISTA: [surprised] Really?
JULI: [modestly] Yeah. I’m kind of addicted to Twitter.
BARISTA: I don’t Twitter. I just, you know, e-mail.
JULI: You should get a Twitter account. Lots of businesses use Twitter!
BARISTA: So, would you tell people on Twitter, if they mention the cafe, and “twit” or “tweet”, they can get a free coffee?
IN JULI’S HEAD: I’m not going to sell out for four bucks.
WHAT JULI REALLY SAYS: [reluctantly] Uh, yeah. Sure. OK.
My Chilli Mochachino was very nice.
Edited to add. Health warning: Coffee and Twitter are highly addictive. When coffee and Twitter are used together, you can be offensive to others.
