Coffee Drinks Only My Husband Orders

"Mud Eye."
Blank look from barista.
"Mud shot."
Contined blank look.
He's done it again -
confounded, conflated, combined,
created new names.
What he really wants is:
A Shot in the Dark
aka Red Eye, Sludge Cup
or Depth Charge.*
Just hope he doesn't request
and get
a Shot in the Eye.

*names for a shot or more of espresso in a cup of coffee - a strong cup of coffee.
