Hello, Mr. Maynard. Mr. Lark. How have you been of late? Fine, not-withstanding our oppressive tax-and-spend government. Your polite but fiery temperament inspires me, Mr. Maynard. And yours Mr. Lark.
Of course I can get you a double-caffeine espresso. You … you can? Coffee King. You mean my usual café hasn't blacklisted me throughout the tri-county area like they said they did? You mean to tell me my cardiologist and my crabby wife haven't sent every cafe do not serve this man posters like they said they did? Well in that case, hurry up and give it to me before the old battleaxe finds a parking spot! Oh, don't worry. There's a convention next door. She'll be circling the block for hours. How do you like your gentle-flower chamomile tea? People who double-park should burn forever in the fiery pits of hell.
