Ladies and Gentlemen, meet "Stradivarius," the Local Virtuoso who just this morning took the fine art of parking behind Our Favorite Starbucks to musical, new heights. The fun began when, like so many before him, he beached his car -- a Shiny, New Lexis -- on the Curb from Hell. "Here we go again," said Kathy, "Another one bites the dust." Unlike most drivers, however, who simply back their way off the curb or continue driving over it, Stradivarius seemed confused. He backed up, then went forward, again and again, each time scraping his axle loudly against the pavement in an almost sinister, screeching violin concerto. Poor Stradivarius. He tried to rush in and out of Starbucks unnoticed but his performance got him a standing ovation ... and a spot in my blog!
