COME IN TOKYO

DISASTER IN A TOKYO MCDONALDS

Gutful of Sausage McMuffin, I retreat to Starbucks, reeking of grease and cigarettes. Arriving early at Kokubunji Station, I decided to chance the Golden Arches. Worse than anticipated: 7:16 am; half staffed cashier frantic from coffee maker to deep fryer to grill. Second floor filled by slumped salarymen, jabbering students; everybody sucking cancer, eating McCrap. Its A Man`s World, James Brown croons as I order my grande latte. Better tell that to the boys across the street. Tokyo, Thurs. 12/01/05
