SPINNING WHEELS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Wheels were spinning at 7th and Montana this morning as an Anonymous High Roller made the scene in a Snazzy New Nissan 370 Z (CA License #5KPR698). The only problem is, he couldn't drive it. He accelerated too quickly on entering the Starbucks parking lot, spun his wheels uselessly, then threw it into reverse, sending pedestrians scurrying for cover. He floored it up 7th Street and settled for a space at the curb. Most people might seem a bit sheepish after such an embarrassing incident, but not the High Roller. He swaggered into Starbucks like he owned the place, wearing dark sunglasses and a shirt suggesting he's a professional poker player. "There's a name for someone like that," said one onlooker, "Doofus!" Speaking of names, congratulations to Howard and Cathy who announced the birth of a beautiful, new granddaughter with an equally beautiful name: Harper. "We almost called her Herpes," Howard said, "but changed it to Harper at the last minute!"

I was thinking DC, LOL. Oh wait, but when you go into DC there are a lot of visitors - so maybe it was someone from Nashville, LOL.

Perhaps he will change his license plate to Doofus to go incognito. Wonder if he knows he has been immortalized on the web :o)
