Most would opt for coffee, but my untainted husband finds cola the more palatable option for his caffeine fix. He pulls up and orders. One medieval Diet Coke, please. Thanks. And only after pulling forward to pick up his order, did it hit him what he asked for. So he immediately called to amuse me.
