Chocolate instead of tea1

On the way back from Slovenia, the stewardess asked me if I would like to have coffee or tea. I smiled at her and said, "No."

Then I said, "By the way, do you have chocolate?"

She said, "Yes."

I meant hot chocolate, but I forgot to say the word 'hot'. So she immediately brought me a chocolate bar. What could I do? There were three pieces of chocolate inside. So I ate two pieces and put the third one on the tray. The stewardess took the tray away and it was all over.

I continued reading. About ten minutes later, she returned and put the third piece back on my tray.
