a curious incident

(I guess that last title kind of ruined the suspense)

So back when Abacus was in neonates - I went to fuel to get a coffee, which is in this tiny little corner of the hospital and reminds me of that lemon, lime and bitters commercial (kind of like this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLigxFg5Whs . except she goes to a vending machine and selects lemon, lime bitters, and the vending machine opens up and there's a posh bar inside with a smooth bartender) because there's this surrounding setting of a sterile pale walled hospital, then in this tiny corner there's this flash little takeaway cafe bar.

So anyway, I ask for a mochachino with 2 sugars. The barrister is hella european and he shakes his head with a smile and simply says "No".

And I'm like Um?
And he says - "It'll be too sweet . . . I'll put one in."

And then went to making it.

It was a truely awesome moment in my life.

And the wierd thing is - that no one else has ever seen him.

Weird.
