NOT A CREATURE WAS STIRRING ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!

                   

Not a creature was stirring coffee or anything else at 7th and Montana today as the "Powers that Be" closed Our Favorite Starbucks for the Holiday.  Like many others, I was forced to walk an entire block -- a full 138 steps -- to the next Starbucks.  Frankly, I've always found this "other" Starbucks to be something of a No Man's Land.  Today, however, it was filled with Traitors, regulars like me who made the Exodus from 7th and Montana.  As if to pacify us, Starbucks played Classic Christmas Carols and handed out cups with the following message:  "A good way to pass the cheer when you're on the road is to pay the toll for the car behind you.  Do this and you might start to look at stoplights as holiday lights instead.  Red means stop and be thankful for a moment.  Green means go out and do nice things."  I think I'll stick with the Starbucks at 7th and Montana where "red" means angry and "green" means there's a good chance you've smashed your car into the Curb from Hell.  Merry Christmas, Everyone ...!

I was thinking the same thing, one block apart?  Well today, you could probably afford the heavy duty late and not worry about the fat count, with the extra walking!  :-)
