What Really Happened at City Hall, or My Emotional Emotional Mayor

The tears rolled down his cheeks as the mayor gingerly placed the burrito in my open hands. "The values that laid the groundwork for an ambitious agenda will allow Minneapolis to rightfully claim its place as the Great American City of our time. And we should settle for nothing less. Also, we offer chili sauce in Mild, Extra-Mild, and Clear." With that he collapsed on the countertop, sobbing and wretching and clutching his chest. I wanted to leave quickly and quietly but I tripped over a mop and dropped my burrito. A replacement burrito seemed out of the question, given the inevitable bureaucratic hassle and the mayor's fragile mental state.

For Christ's sake!! How often do I have to tell you???

Details!! Details!!

Was it a bean burrito, or a beef burrito?

This could make a difference when your parole comes up.

That is what's holding Minneapolis back -- your lack of spicy food.

I will send you my spare flashlight, but you will need to find new batteries.

You could try some SPF 30 and pretend.

I hate when you drop your burrito and CAN'T ASK FOR ANOTHER ONE!!

And 13 days with no sun??? No wonder the mayor is a basket case. He probably left the mop there on purpose, just hoping you'd trip. Lack of sun makes some people spiteful.
