Photo Hunt-theme: Skinny

Although my small rural community is adequately supplied with coffee alternatives, it is not so much of the culture that this non-coffee drinker has assumed the vocabulary. So when we were headed home from visiting the grandkids the other day, and Hubby pulled in for a latte for the road and ordered the special sugar free and with non-fat milk and no whipped cream, my ears pricked up when I heard the barrista's voice over the speaker tell him, "We call that a skinny!" My camera was ready when we got to the window.

Right, I am familiar with the term. Don't take any kind of milk with my coffee though ;-)

Have a great week!

Well we sure were on the same wave length with the skinny idea!

I like your photo better. The barista's lovely face and smile makes for more vitality than my still life.

I'm very happy you came by my post and commented.

I love your winter pictures, btw. I'm going back now to admire them some more.
