24HourCoffeePeople is a bustling coffee shop on the outskirts of London: this blog shares moments where caffeine isn’t the main event but the people who visit or work there really are.
With the cat court case looming tomorrow, Milo is full of nervous energy which he is clearly dissipating by offloading his excess emotions into frantic milk frothing , producing fat and overly fluffy cappuchinos that slop over the sides of the cup. Guy, never one to miss a moment of internal gossip, gives Milo manly slaps of encouragement on the back which causes an already precarious tower of froth to fall in clouds over Milo’s shoes. Guy is a keen Facebooker and also works as a singing monk for a German variety act. They are so popular in Germany that he spends almost the entire month of December over there entertaining audiences with jazzed up chants. There is apparantly also some flame throwing involved. Guy likes to kiss his coffee mates by way of a greeting – they are wet, featherweight efforts – one on either cheek. This morning I broke the news that I am not a kisser unless abroad where it is just too complicated to explain about personal space and friends randomly launching themselves at me, which never fails to give me a fright. He wasn’t happy that his sophisticated continental greeting method was spurned.
