A CHANGE OF PACE ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA

Shock waves rippled across 7th and Montana this morning as I ordered something in addition to my usual Grande Half Caff and Los Angeles Times. The fun began shortly after Barista Veronica handed me my half caff. "I'd also like a Black Iced Tea this morning," I said, calmly. For a brief moment, all activity stopped. The Espresso Machine went quiet. The Cash Registers stopped ringing. The Apple Fritters froze in their tracks. The Baristas seemed dumbfounded, but it didn't take them long to recover. "Wow," said one, "You've ordered something new." I didn't have the heart to tell them it was for Screenwriter Mark.
