ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER SUPERHERO ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


What's the world coming to when a Superhero, sworn to protect Starbucks from evildoers of all kinds, is afraid to step foot in the pouring rain? Ladies and Gentlemen, meet "The Schlep," a new hero in our midst, who came to my attention yesterday in a most unusual way. "I've got a Tall Double Espresso here for Batman!," shouted Barista David, "Batman: Are you out there?!?" Evidently, the "Schlep" (pictured above), specializes in giving the Baristas a different Superhero name every time he places an order. "It keeps them on their toes," he laughed. "I see," I replied, quietly whipping out my cameraphone, "Who will you be tomorrow?" "I don't know yet," he said, "I'll have to think of something appropriate!" "How about Wonder Woman?," muttered Genevieve, as the would-be Superhero schlepped his way out the door and up 7th Street. In the end, the question was moot: the Schlep never made it to Starbucks today, no doubt because it was raining. Fortunately, the Man of Steel and his brother Tyrannosaurus Boy (pictured below) -- known for racing around town in their Little Red Wagon -- were not afraid to brave the elements. "Where are your costumes today?," I asked. "We are in costume," insisted the Man of Steel, as he chug-a-lugged his chocolate milk, "We're dressed in Human Suits today!"

Maybe the snow and cold is why we do not have as many Starbucks here, patrons are afraid of the elements.

The Schlep looks awfully pleased with himself. Apparently smugness is one of his superpowers!
