    Default ¿Comprendes, mi Capitán, comprendes? (CTG)

    I slide smoothly into the booth at the Thunder Grill, request
    a Double Harvey Wallbanger that Carlos the waiter first hears
    as a Double Hardy Bullfinger. . . a Rubble Hootie Buzzburger. . .
    a DaDa Hitty Juicebunker. . . Good -- finally il comprende. I slurp


    ADVERTISING




    the iced licorice-tangy, orange-vodka-Galliano mix and order up
    a double serving of Gazpacho and a bowl of Chili Con Carne after
    a hard day's edit, vow not to walk into any walls as legend claims
    Harvey the Surfer once did; a VA-bound train rumbles beneath us;

    it's the Thunder Grill all right tonight, and I'm chilling in Union Station
    four days before the 9/11 anniversary. Any more craziness to come
    down the pike? Guy sits at the bar in orange sports jersey, shorts, sox;
    instead of a sports hero's moniker pasted on his back: "3. Jesus Walks".

    Thanks, Lindy. I am actually a complete duffer at languages other than English and a Spanish-speaking poet helped me to tweak the Spanish language phrases.

    All the best
