I am ashamed to admit that after two months of employment at the cafe, I am still learning to make smoothies. As in, I nearly have a panic attack every time a customer orders one. So, I have to take a deep breath and tell myself to act confident, and to add an extra little scoop of ice (my smoothies have tended to come in undersized). On Thursday, a lovely older lady ordered a Peach-Lavender smoothie, which I had never made nor even tried before. I ended up with an extra half-cup (thanks, extra ice!), which I decided to try for myself. I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty it was.
Then I took out the lady's lunch plate and overheard her say to her companion, "This smoothie is great - I feel like I am taking a bubble bath!"
And from then on, my brain decided the lavender made the smoothie taste like soap. Damn!
