A WHOLE NEW DEMENTIA IN BAKED GOODS ...!

                             

Mouths were watering -- or perhaps it was just drool -- at 7th and Montana this morning as word spread that Our Favorite Starbucks was offering free samples of its all-new Lemon Blueberry Muffin.  As far as pastries go, the Lemon Blueberry Muffin is pretty standard fare:  A hint of Blueberry and a pinch of Lemon, topped with Ubiquitous Starbucks Glaze.  But appearances can be deceiving.  Rumor has that long-term exposure to the Glaze turns people's brains to mush.  Just ask Barista Robb, who seemed more glazed over than the muffins this morning.  "What's this?," he asked me, absent-mindedly pointing to a cup of coffee on the counter.  "I don't know," I replied, "Maybe it's my coffee?"  "Oh yes," he answered, "I just poured that for you a couple of minutes ago."  Ladies and Gentlemen, I rest my case ...!

Looks like a lot of yellow food dye!  But tasty I'm sure.
