    Never more than two. As an aside, I was at O'Hare and ordering a "Large Coffee" and the barista asks "you mean Grande?" so I ask if "Grande" means "Large" in Italian and she says "I don't know Italian." So I ask "but you want me to order in Italian?" and she says "no, I'm just checking what size coffee you want." So I say "un espresso doppio" (which isn't really the right way to order but it worked when I was in Italy and she says "I'm pretty sure we don't have that."

    One word, "No."

    Response to "Room for cream?" after I hand over my insulated car mug.

    Only thing I put in my coffee is my face.

    Refill.

    I'm always tickled by the coffees they have at the Circle K near my work, though. They have to rotate the oddball ones. Peruvian such and such, Ethiopian something or other. I don't care for any of them, but their just being there makes buying coffee from a convenience store in a bad part of town feel much more sophisticated.

    I'm kinda like Norm at my LCS. Some days I don't speak a word. I hold my mug lofted high, wait for the smile and nod, set it down, put my 2 dollars on the register, read email on the phone, hear my name, screw on the lid, slip it back in the pack, throw the leg over the fatty and ride the rest of the way into the office.

    Technically, if i must speak... large americano, honey.

    If it's summer, then large espresso, honey, ice.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    If it's a guy barista, do you still call him "honey"?

    That dude drinks sooooo much coffee, and he never pees. Or at least it's not written about.

    The honey is for the coffee. However, depends on the guy, my mood, day of the week, week of the month.... actually no, I would not call the male barista honey because that's like sexual harassment that could potentially lead to a crisis of identity, man. I would be exercising my power over him as a paying customer that could make or break his barista career. He might freak out and have a panic attack and burn himself with the steamed milk of the patron in front of me. I wouldn't do that, he may have to at some point deal with some millennial's gibber gabber lingo spanning the Webster's new english slang dictionary for a translation. Unless of course the barista is already a hipster and then of course there's nothing lost in the translation but could still involve a whiskey commercial. I also just want a good cup of coffee which is impossible for a barista in distress. I do not want stress laden sweat in my brew, throws off the taste buds ya' know. Anyway, no I would refrain from calling male baristas honey, because you never really know what will happen... then again, no reward without risk, so maybe. No, definitely not. Final answer, I'm totally and completely confident in my response ....probably...

    It is well known that members of the military don't have time to pee, so diapers are worn during stakeouts or whatever. The real boy scout military just wear diapers all the time, always prepared. The ones who think Bear Grylls is the messiah will actually squeeze out the pee and drink it because who needs a canteen when you have a reusable diaper. Plus, we all know that gatorade contains salts for improved physical performance and one can recover lost salts by drinking pee and licking the sweat from their bodies.

    Or, we all know everyone pees so what is the point of writing a half page about peeing? How does that continue the plot line? Maybe it would be interesting if there was some sort of attack during a number 2, but pee is just boring.

    No problem sweetness, bitterness or tasteless that's neither a compliment, an insult or an inconsequential word in passing. I'm just glad or not that I could provide an answer to your simple question. Whatever makes you feel comfortable or not without any uncomfortableness or comfort for my part.

    0 words. I have never ordered coffee. I only drink coffee when I go camping and it is percolated. I drink starbucks coffee, but I have never had coffee made there.
    I used to see a lot of UFO's. However I just realized I'm simply bad at identifying things.
