BASED ON A TRUE STORY.
So you’ll remember a while ago I posted about the fickleness of latte art. In celebration of Valentines Day, our store – along with lots of other Bridgeheads – tried our best to pass on the love with heart-shaped latte art. People loved it and it’s always nice to hear how much people appreciate the extra bit of love.
Oh, if only it was always the case….
See, the problem with heart shaped latte art is that it can easily go astray. Now, before you get your hopes up… no, I do not have photographic evidence of this kind of latte art, because as you soon will understand when this kind of latte art makes an appearance, it is neither the time nor the place to say… “Excuse me, can you wait one sec while I run to get my camera?”
Oh no, my friends. Oh. No.
I might as well just get it out of the way. The this is referring to sneakiness and stealthiness of penis latte art.
Imagine with me for a second, if you will. You’re chatting up a regular customer while making their latte – taking care to make it perfect. Your milk is perfect. Your espresso sublime. You’re about to pour the perfect heart shape into their cup and send them on their way…. when all of a sudden! You know it. They know it. There’s no denying it. Your latte art heart has taken a turn for the phallic.
Uhhh… where do I look?
In that moment, you’d give anything for more room in the cup. More milk in your pitcher. More time traveling abilities to go back and turn it all around. But sadly, there’s nothing you can do except hope against hope that they didn’t see it, too. That when they sip their latte, they won’t be reminded of the penis latte that you’ve generously gifted them with.
