Suicide Coffee Please

cimg04851.jpg

7 years ago I went into a Starbucks in Japan and ordered a coffee of the day.

I proudly said in Japanese, “jisatsu no kohi onegaishimasu”.
Translated I said, suicide coffee please.
The correct words for today’s coffee is honjitsu no kohi.
The woman who took my order gave me the coffee of the day with a straight face.
20 minutes later I ordered another suicide coffee; I got my coffee of the day with a straight face again.
I love Japan.
