While ordering a coffee the other day I was using my elementary Japanese to try and explain that I wanted only a small amount of milk in my cappuccino. I used a variety of words and lame pantomime to indicate 'small,' 'little' and 'few.' After a few minutes I wasn't sure what I was saying, but I'm sure with my bad Japanese I had probably inadvertently told the barista that her ass was wide and her mother had a beard. Finally, a look of recognition crossed her face and she said to me, "Oh! You mean you want a dry cappuccino?"
Hey - let me know if you can't view the video.)
Note: A dry cappuccino is one made with less milk than foam. And if you were a coffee nerd like me, you would have known that.
