running latte

blending adj
Being late for the meeting or class since one stops by to buy coffee or tea
 
The way the words “late” and “latte” look similar is creatively used to combine the cause and effect kind of relationship. I don’t exactly know how to pronounce the word “latte” here, either the way it is pronounced as late or latte.
Etymology : the pronunciation/spelling late is similar to latte
