MAKING A SCENE AT 7TH AND MONTANA ...!

                             

It was a day to see, be seen and make a scene at 7th and Montana today as picture perfect weather drew crowds in record numbers.  While local luminaries ranging from Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger to LPGA Hall of Fame Golfer Amy Alcott graced us with their presence, the most notable appearance was that of two gentlemen who held up traffic by placing the most finicky order I've ever heard for a cup of coffee.  "Make mine a Double Vente Berry Frapuccino with a Shot of Vanilla, Soy Milk Only and Extra Whipped Cream," said the man pictured above to the right.  "By the way, can I see the mug you are serving it in? ... Don't go away, I also want a Banana Bran muffin but may I inspect it first?"  At this point, I tuned-out, only to later hear him grilling the cashier about the percentage of bran in Starbucks' muffins.  By the time they finished ordering, I felt like asking either the Governator or the equally formidable Amy Alcott to rough them up a bit ...!

Try ordering black coffee. Someone will ask you to repeat that a few times because they can't believe that you don't want anything in it. And who the hell gets "soymilk only" and then tops it with "extra whipped cream"? --Cin

We haven't really got into finicky ordering over here yet. Probably because it would surely end in violence.
