At the café, while waiting on line, of course.

In my apparently continuing series of Stanley's Unique Snowflake Observations About New York City, I noticed something about coffee orders.

I tend to order coffee with a bit more milk than average, and back home I order this as "coffee with plenty of room." That order doesn't always work in NYC, as a lot of baristas tend to put the milk in for you, so my order has been this awkward-sounding "coffee with skim milk; like, a pretty good amount of it."

However! yesterday I heard another patron order "coffee light with skim milk," which I confirmed is exactly what I want. I just didn't know how to order it un-clumsily.

But now I do, and it's a pleasant phrase to boot.
