The crowd rejoiced at 7th and Montana this morning on news that Our Favorite Starbucks is once again offering a wide selection of sandwiches, salads, yogurt and fruit after yesterday's mysterious "food hiatus." Indeed, for a brief period, it appeared that the cupboard was bare with the exception of a sign advising any customers interested in food to "ask (their) Barista for assistance." The incident left me imagining the following exchange:
Unfortunate Customer: Excuse me, may I ask for some assistance with a sandwich?
Barista Extraordinaire: What do you need ... some help chewing?!?
