Freudian slip?

November 3, 2006

After running into a friend, British Emily, whom I hadn’t seen in a couple years, on the street, I crossed the avenue into the deli, to get an Alka-Seltzer (my stomach was upset, a bit) and a coffee.

But at the counter, in a conflation of my two requests, what I announced was, “Can I have an alcohol?”

No I cannot.

    Have you ever dissolved an Alka-Seltzer in a cup of piping-hot black coffee? It’s about as fun as chasing BC powder with said coffee. However Freudian your slip was, I’m proud of you holmes.
