MUCH MALigned ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!

It was a Happy Reunion at 7th and Montana this morning as I met my friend and former colleague, Mal, at the "fancy schmancy cafe" across from Our Favorite Starbucks. Mal, a wheeler-dealer CEO type from New York, has been reading my blog and was quick to ask me questions about it. "All these people you photograph, do they know you're taking their picture?," he asked. "No," I replied, whipping out my Spycam, "I usually try to make it look like I'm on the phone or sending someone a text message." I held my phone aloft to prove my point, then snapped his photo when he wasn't looking. "By the way," I continued, "the fact that we're meeting here is something of a milestone. I've been boycotting this place ever since we caught the owner dropping a bagel on the floor, dusting it off with her bare hands, and putting it back in the display case." Mal smiled politely. For the record, I did a little fact checking and it turns out that the troubles with the "Fancy Schmancy Cafe" began on February 17, 2008 when Robb and Robin caught the same owner handling money, then grabbing and slicing bagels without washing her hands. Fortunately, none of this was a problem today. Neither Mal nor I ordered any Finger Food ...!

And "They" wonder why people get sick!!! Your friend is quite cute by the way.

I wouldn't have ate there. If your friend insisted on staying fine, it might get uncomfortable watching him eat. (Hugs)Indigo

Glad you had a chance to get caught up with your friend and that you avoided some nasty food.

I had to stop watching The X-Files because Agent Scully would be in the middle of an alien autopsy and then do things like touch her face and answer her cell phone. I'd get so freaked out that I'd scream at the TV ("ALIEN GOO!") and have to turn it off.
