LOBBYING FOR LOBSTER ...!

    

The Starbucks in Berlin stands vindicated after I "raked them over the coals" yesterday for their lack of Triple Berry Cobbler Muffins.  To my horror, a Barista Berliner called my bluff this morning by smiling and offering me a freshly baked Very Berry Muffin.  "Good Lord, no," I replied.  "Those things are putrid.  They leave an indelible stain on your fingers."  No doubt I'll be thrown out of the country by tomorrow.  Meanwhile, seafood appears to be on the menu today at 7th and Montana as Genevieve reports that a young girl arrived on the scene with a giant, inflatable Lobster.  Perhaps on my next trip to the Starbucks near Potsdamer Platz I'll ask for a Fresh Lobster Dinner just to see how they react ...!

The last time I was working in Germany, I thought what I was putting on my roll was butter.............. Oh no, pigs dripping with onions! I have never spat anything out of my mouth so quick. I would have rather eaten a Merrick muffin ;-)

You are a putz, LOL.  Making them go out of their way and then refusing it.  I would of bought it for the mere diplomatic relations and ask them to bag it.  Then you could take it back to your room and ask for a spoon and eat it without getting your fingers mussy.  Hope I don't see you on the news, LOL - fighting lobster!
