"I'm almost fluent" word of the day 8.17

Little did I know that all those years of ordering a coffee I was speaking French when I said....

Cafe´au lait
(Yes, I know the accent thing is supposed to be right over the "e" but I have not mastered punctuation in French on my computer)

....which obviously translates to coffee with milk.

And here I thought it was a fancy Starbucks drink. And in Canada, it's more expensive too...close to 5$.
