"Hi Charlie! Is something wrong? You seem... stunned? Unsettled? Confused? Frazzled...?"

"Do I? I suppose I do... There was this woman in the bar..."

"Ooooh...?"

"She ordered drinks, well, she kept ordering drinks. I mean drink after drink after drink... She got me completely bamboozled..."

"Ehmmm..."

"I mean... she asked for a cup of tea. I thought 'What a classy lady'."

"Right... We do not have many people drinking tea around here... but it is not totally uncommon order, is it?" 

"But then, STRAIGHT AWAY, she asked for a shot of vodka!"

"Oh?!"

"AND a glass of water."

"Ooookeeey..."

"And THEN she wanted orange juice."

"OOOOOH?!"

"AND hot chocolate!"

"Nooooo?!"

"Yeeeees!!!"

"It seems crazy!"

"Exactly THIS is what makes me completely addled! WHY does it seem crazy? Why am I surprised? Why the fact that someone craves, simultaneously, many different beverages completely dumbfounds me?!?!"

"Eghmmmm... Maybe..."

"Why wasn't I intrigued... excited... inspired? Only unsettled... shaken... Not stirred though!"

"What can I say Charlie, maybe..."

"I should have rejoiced in that wonderful opportunity! Work my craft! Give various suggestions..."

"Well..."

"Discuss options... "

"Actually I was thinking about having a drink..."

"...ask her preferences... Where they come from... "

"Charlie..."

"What a wasted opportunity!"
