Brunch Baby

Baby and visiting gal-pal Suzie enjoyed a brunch of Moroccan omlettes and strawberry waffles at Marseille in Hell's Kitchen. Attempting to order en Francais, Baby snapped his fingers, barked "Garcon!" and slowly repeated the only other French word he knew, "existentialism." Bewildered, the waiter asked him to clarify. Rather than revert to English, Baby switched to the universal language of mime. In deference to the late Marcel Marceau, he acted out the breakfast order with astonishing dynamism - including a silent re-enactment of a chicken laying an egg.
