'With chocolate on top?'

Despite daily visits, I haven't made myself enough of a regular at my local Gail's to avoid this question, and I wish I would. I think what I object to also is the go on treat yourself with something naughty delivery of the question. If I want chocolate, I'm going to buy a massive cookie with seven types of chocolate, rather than spoil a perfectly decent cappuccino with powdered pondlife.

My fairly recent adoration of cappuccino has gone hand in hand with having to say no to chocolate more than I care to. So it's wonderful to find a kindred spirit in Geoff Dyer (below). If there are enough of us perhaps we can rise up and save baristas across the country from having to even ask.
