The dispensation that began lo so many years ago back in 1993 (so Andrea, who would know, has told me) is about to end. For many years this storefront on the Corner has looked like so...
Soon, but not yet. Nobody shall know the day or the hour, etc.
But now it seems they are going to open, really and truly. The sign behind Andrea and Laura says "Hiring."
In a matter of days, or weeks at most, you will be able to get a lox and cream cheese bagel on the Corner to go with your Frappucino. I say "you" because I will not be there for the parousia, having already been raptured to the paradise that is Berkeley.
