Woman Rescued From Her Zombie-Like State With Emergency Espresso Coffee

The staff at The Good Home restaurant and bar could be forgiven for thinking it was the beginning of the zombie apocalypse this morning. 

25 year old lawyer Libby Edgerton stumbled towards the barista at 8 o’clock, dragging one foot behind her and generally looking like one of the walking dead. 

“It was quite a shock to see the state of her this morning,” said Janine Preston, who was the cashier at the time. 

“I wasn’t sure if she just really needed a flat white, or if I needed to evacuate the building because she’d been bitten”. 

In a dull groan, Edgerton made her usual order at the counter, her eyes showing no signs of life whatsoever. 

Thankfully it turned out to be severe caffeine withdrawal that was the reason for her frightening appearance, and not the start of the end of the world. “Luckily the large double shot flat white made the colour return to her cheeks. It was a real rescue operation in the end,” said Preston. 

Ms. Edgerton seemed dazed and confused when asked about her ordeal.

“Huh? What? Oh I’m at The Good Home having a coffee, haha, I don’t even remember how I got to Wigram. Weird.

“I guess it’s like they say, don’t try talking to me before I’ve had my coffee, hahaha,” she laughed, while others joined her out of obligation. 

More to come.
