A Poet's Place

The Gazeebo: The Fog is Lifting

Bonjour!

And that is basically the end of my knowledge of the language of French that I know lol.  Anyway, I worked again today – got to make a drink called a Cafe Caramel (iced) .. either, coffee really is only an acquired taste that I just can’t stand.. or iced coffee just isn’t for me lol.  I mean, I used to like it when I was younger and we’d go up to our cabin and I’d drink it outside with my parents (though it took me a good hour at least to finish one cup), but now the only thing that I sort of enjoy are the little frappuccinos that you can buy in the store.  So, I think I’ll either try it hot next time, or just stick to smoothies 😛
