Oh, South Africa

ImageAs soon as the barista saw me this morning he said, “I’ve got bad news.”  My heart sank because I thought for sure the espresso machine was broken.  “Really, what is it?”

“We’re out of milk.”

My face fell and then he told me, “But he’s bringing some from South Campus.”

In my mind I thought, is he bringing it or going to bring it.  So I asked him if it was actually on its way.

He replied, “Yes, he’s on his way now with the milk.”

Wait, I know this usage…is he on his way now? Now, now? or just now?

He said, “My manager said that he is on his way.” Then with a sly smile, “I hope you aren’t in a hurry.”
