Funny thing about foreign languages is that they have words for specific things that don't exist in english. This is a word that is becoming more important in American life.
SEIGNEUR-TERRASSE - Someone who spends time, but not money, at a café.
Ah, Kid Various remembers the years with Mr. Scriblerus and Mr. Surly spent pursuing careers as seigneur-terrasses at Cafe Newz in Hub City.
In fact, there were a whole lot of seigneur-terrasses there, king among them being Dope, who once asked for water "not in a bottle - but from the tap..."
No wonder Cafe Newz burned down, probably for the insurance money.
Ah, Cafe Newz, we sh*t on thee
and wipe our asses with the chart...
