I'm Tall, I'm Thin, I Like Spicy Tea.

At the risk of turning this place into Overheard in New York, I give you this gem from Starbucks today, starring me (in a silent role) and a pack of disaffected teenagers:
Disaffected Teen #1: "What are you gonna get?"
Disaffected Teen #2: "I think I got a chai."
Disaffected Teen #3: "Chai is gay, dude."
Starbucks Barrista, placing my order on the pick-up table: "Grande Chai Latte!"

I also drink the chai latte, and know too well the social stigma it carries. But it's just so damn tasty.

I love that the kid said, "I think I got a chai." Like he wasn't completely certain what he had JUST ordered. Was he hedging because he predicted the response? I wonder...
