ROASTING THE ROAST ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!

                             

Howard burst on the scene at 7th and Montana this morning with what appeared to be Good News:  Starbucks is issuing free gift cards every Wednesday to get people to try their new Pikes Place Roast.  "Look," he said, "This card came in the Los Angeles Times and it entitles me to get a free cup of the new Starbucks coffee every Wednesday!"  Unfortunately, at the rate things are going, the only person likely to take Starbucks up on their offer is our Notorious Neighborhood Newspaper Thief.  "There's a rebellion brewing," said Ace Photographer Kovar, "No one likes this new stuff."  To emphasize his point, he added, "Your Friend with the Lizard was just in here and she refused to drink it ... she made the Barista brew a new pot!"  Personally, I'm not sure what all the Brew-haha is about.  I like the new coffee ... but, then, again, I've always been a rebel!

It would have to be pretty bad for me to refuse a free cup of coffee... but I have to admit...I'm in love with the Snickernut coffee at my grocery store.  It tastes like cookies - which is awesome since I'm on a diet and cookies aren't on my list of allowed stuff....  ;-P

If the newspaper thief uses the free coffee cards, perhaps he will leave the paper well enough alone that day...I'm surprised no one has caught him yet. (Hugs) Indigo
