Let Me Talk like Human With You?: a first week in London

Katherine (mutters): Can have cafemochatogoplease?

Expected Response: OH MY GOD ARE YOU AMERICAN I CAN TELL BECAUSE YOU SOUND AWFUL WHAT DOES "TO GO" EVEN MEAN ARE YOU REFERRING TO HOW YOU WISH THE FAT ON YOUR AMERICAN BODY WOULD "TO GO"? UGH LEAVE BEFORE I SAY SOMETHING ADORABLY ELOQUENT WITH ENCHANTING INFLECTIONS.

Actual Response: Sorry?

Katherine: SorryI'mgonnagonowthankyoumuch

And she rode into the London sunset, never to return.  Sometimes, if you stand close enough to this very coffee shop, you'll be able to hear the faint, barely audible whispers: "to go...to go..."
