On Tuesday night I met up with other members of our Taize group. We had a meal at an Italian restaurant (next to MY coffee shop) which was great. Scanning the ‘specials’ board I noticed the that there was on offer; Espresso, and Vanilla Ice Cream. I ordered what I thought was going to be a pleasant cup of coffee to have whilst, or just after, eating my ice cream. Turns out though that it is in fact, one dish. An Ice cream with a coffee poured over the top, Doh! Made me laugh.
Are there other potential misunderstanding traps that I should be aware of if eating out?
Also, is there any special knowledge I should have about eating at Taize in addition to the frightening fact that there is NO coffee. (I hadn’t realised in time that I had signed up for a decaffeinated form of Monasticism!!!)
