But nobody around here announces themselves as anything. The last place I was in where anyone said hi Im X and Ill be your X was a self-consciously trendy restaurant in Madison WI. You got a little plate a dry green crud for thirteen dollars. We had a place here in Macomb where they did that (announced, not gave you dry green crud). The guy was dressed up in something like Admiral Nelson's dress uniform, and hovered annoyingly around for the whole meal. I wanted to say, WILL YOU PLEASE JUST GET AWAY!!!!!!!!! Fortunately, that place went down the tubes and was replaced by something plainer and more sensible. Tim Frazer
