All eyes were on the Dignified Walking Lady -- the woman known for wearing Arctic attire in 90-degree heat -- this morning at Our Favorite Starbucks. After my post last week (INK-A-DINK-A-DOO ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!), everyone, it seems, is keeping a close eye on the poor woman in the hopes that she'll do a little tap dance and sing like Jimmy Durante. I'm sorry to burst your bubble, folks, but that post was an April Fool's joke and, quite frankly, I'm amazed at the number of people who fell for it. "What do you expect?," asked my colleague, Chuck (who also fell for it), "You have a guy at your Starbucks who locks himself in the Men's Room and belts out Opera tunes ... why wouldn't we believe that the Dignified Walking Lady sounds like Jimmy Durante?" For the record, there's really not much to say about this woman except that she's dignified, she walks and she's probably somebody's Aunt Arctica ...!

I had been thinking some of your entries seemed like April 1st jokes. Can that many weird people come to one place or have I been around cows too long? lol

I still say it would not have been the craziest thing to happen at that Starbucks! Chuck
