On Mondays and Fridays, I like to go to the coffee cart and get my nonfat tea lattes and a slice of banana or cranberry bread. So, today being Friday, I drove over to the cart. (It's about 5 minutes' drive away from school, so I just leave home a bit earlier, eat in the car, get to school at the same time.)
I parked in the very wet parking lot, grabbed my travel cup and thermos and purse, climbed out. And looked in surprise at the area under my car, where big puddles of cafe latte were accumulating. Really, it looked like my car was dripping latte, all around the edges. And for the life of me, I couldn't figure out how I was dripping latte, I hadn't picked up my tea yet!
DUH moment - I realized there was construction work along the road, I had driven in on the torn up side through all kinds of muddy puddles - so this was very milky MUD dripping from the bottom of my car.
Uh huh. Latte dripping from my car. Yeah, right. I just had latte on the brain!
