Monkey Checks Out The New Starbucks


...but we decided that we didn't like it as well as the one we've been going to for the past couple of years. Sure, this one is right there in front of the Museum Of Contemporary Art, also known as MOCA, and next to North Miami City Hall. They blocked off N.E.7th Ct. and paved it with bricks making for a nice large outdoor plaza, but parking is less convenient and it doesn't get the vibrant crowd of college students that frequesnt the Starbucks at 135th St. and Biscayne Blvd. It's too quiet, and while it tries to be "arty" it's really quite staid.

Of course Monkey is about ready to retire. He reminded me that I started to collect Social Security when I turned 62 a couple years back, and we have documentation in the form of photographs to show that Monkey is at least 62 now himself. I tried explaining to him that he's never paid into the system but it's not easy convincing a senile old toy. Monkey wants to apply anyway. He suggested that we could at least drive up to Ft. Lauderdale and go by the district office of Congressman Alcee Hastings. That might just work, too! Alcee would probably love to have a photograph of himself with monkey hanging on his office wall.

Even though Monkey is getting old and frail he came back from his recent San Francisco trip with a sexy young hussy by the name of Monkette (thank you Todd Frederick) who'd convinced him to start wearing a gold earing in his left ear. Monkette is eager to check out the sights here in North Miami even if Monkey is lazily sitting at home watching TV while waiting for the checks to arrive. Whether or not Alcee and Monkey pull of the Social Security stunt of the new century I promised Monkette that I could cover her cappucino tab. She should start showing up on The Price of Silver in a week or so. Let's all give her a warm welcome!

Starbucks is always good for picking up cheeks while the wife is at work.
