Aaron: So what’s this guy’s name?  The one who works at the restaurant who you like?

Julie: Simon.

Aaron:  Oh, hmm.  I always thought Simons were smart.

Julie cackles with laughter.

Julie.  He’s not!

They both laugh.

It’s a busy-as-usual Saturday night, and everyone at concession has line ups.  Aaron is on C1.

Aaron:  Enjoy the show!

MAN:  Thanks.

A woman (50-something… not sure), made-up face and wearing jewelery, arms linked with and dragging what seems to be either her incapacitated husband (50’s) or a mute hostage.  The woman speaks quickly, as if it is a life or death situation.

Aaron: Hel–

Woman:  Cappuccino.

Aaron: [taken aback]  I’m sorry?

Woman:  Cappuccino.  Cappuccino!

Aaron:  Oh!  Uh, unfortunately, we don’t have specialty coffees anymo–

Woman: Coffee!  Do you have coffee?

Aaron:  Yes, we–

Woman:  Give me a coffee!

Aaron: Um, sure.  Would you like a regular size or–

Woman:  Regular!

Aaron:  Alright.

He pushes the button on the screen and turns around to dispense said coffee.  When he turns back around with the cup of coffee, there is exact change laid out next to his till.

Aaron:  Here you–

The woman snatches her coffee and drags her husband/hostage (oh wait.  Same thing) away.  Aaron stands there, momentarily stunned.

Just another night at Fifth Ave.

Alright, so for those who may be clever enough to see that this is in fact “part 2” and are wondering what in the hell that means, I first started a blog a few days ago on blogger but I wasn’t really feeling the lack of categories (I like to be organized!).  Plus, I think I made my blog kind of morbid-looking, even for my tastes, which is really saying something.  And since my good buddy, Stefan, a formidable writer himself, has a blog on this site, I decided to steal his idea and use it myself.  Thanks, Stefan.

Anyway, I’m going to be doing the same thing as I planned to do with my other blog: slowly post my collection of stories, poems, song lyrics, and other assortment of manic things that spewed from my mind.  Also, leave comments!  I like comments, especially good ones.

So, once again… let’s get this thing started!
