Suburban Bears

So I’m out getting coffee this morning, trying to get a head start on the day, and I’m standing in line and this girl walks up behind me. I can tell out of the corner of her eye that she’ s holding something brown and furry. The cashier takes a look at her and says, “Ma’am, you can’t bring your dog in here.” “It’s not a dog,” the girl says in an indignant yet totally serious manner, “it’s a bear.” “Regardless,” the cashier responds in an equally serious manner, “there’s a health code regulation.” Before I could get a good look, the girl turns around and storms out. I looked out the window, but I lost her in the crowd.

Since I didn’t get a chance to see what she was holding, I’m going to spend all day wondering if she really had a baby bear instead of working my take home final, which is what I should be doing. Great.

Anyway, if you happen to live in the Clarendon area, enjoy Starbucks, and own a pet bear, remember to leave it outside, there’s no health code loophole. Although I guess one exception might be when you own a full-size bear. No one is going to argue with you when you’ve got a 500 lb grizzly backing you up. Of course, it’s probably not a good idea to get your 500 lb grizzly hyped up on caffeine, so maybe you should leave it outside regardless.

    Ahahahah, maybe it was a “bear” of the homosexual variety. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
