The crowd at 7th and Montana was aghast this morning as word spread that Jenny -- who began her career as Assistant Manager at Our Favorite Starbucks several weeks ago -- has mysteriously vanished. In fact, rumor has it that Manager Gabe has already hired her replacement. "I've seen Apple Fritters with more tenure than that," snorted one regular, "I guess we scared her off!" Let's hope Gabe went after the Cream of the Crop to replace her. Meanwhile, speaking of cream, Barista Veronica discovered an Ingenious New Use for Half-and-Half this morning: as a Defensive Weapon. "Oh, no you don't," she said, gesturing towards my Camera Phone as she brandished several containers of cream, "No photos, please!" Little did she realize I had already taken her picture. Sorry, Veronica, I guess there's no use crying over Spilled Milk ...!
