It was Many Happy Returns today at 7th and Montana as Barista Veronica celebrated her 24th Birthday. "Wow," said Screenwriter Nat, "I remember turning 24!" "I don't ... it was too long ago," I replied. For her birthday, Veronica will have to break-in a new Assistant Manager. Leslie -- who joined the team at Our Favorite Starbucks on August 31 -- is already moving-on to Greener Pastures. It seems like just yesterday I had a delightful conversation with her. "What are you taking a picture of?," she asked, smiling? "The empty space where you usually have decaf," I replied. Rumor has it Leslie has transferred to another Starbucks in the area. I hope it wasn't something I said ...!
