Mist to Drive Thru Robot Driver 

What was the madness in the mist 

What was the madness at the drive thru 

Mist (Shakespearean sonnet) 

The moon was full the sea was calm that night
And somewhere in an old familiar mist
Whose mystery helped heighten mere delight
A couple met their moment as they kissed
They held her close and searched within her eyes
For something that was lost so long ago
She felt the other lover in disguise
Another time and place she used to know
They whispered words of love into her ear
But one was false the other still rang true
Within the mist her heart could see quite clear
She wondered what a kiss right now could do
And so they kissed until the ebb of dawn
But when the mist had cleared the girl had gone

(Here is sonnet full of mystery. What is the meaning of "They"? What is the girl's relationship to the mist? Read it again and the sonnet becomes clearer, Why? - Arlene's and my first apartment was on Twin Peaks overlooking San Francisco and the bay. One of the peaks cut the fog, so from our balcony, we could enjoy the show; especially at night  We would move several times and never again have the view we basked in at that apartment. Small wonder the mist covered nights were special to us. In our hearts we relived those moments over and over. Add the kisses... I'm quite sure those moments on that balcony were not what they became and are now. On the nights when the heavy fog rolls in, I enjoy walking with Arlene. Even though she is gone.)

Let us dance in this mystery: Manuel de Falla "El Amor Brujo. Danza del Fuego Fatuo" 

From the mist to the drive thru 

The idea of drive-thru was pioneered in the United States in the 1930s by Jordan Martin and was first used at the Grand National Bank of St. Louis, Missouri. A far cry (or laugh) from Rahat Hossain, of MagicofRahat, and his artificial intelligent robot. Rahat is a magician and prankster, who I think makes his home at drive thrus. This time he has modified his car to make it look like a hungry robot is driving. 
Ever wonder why there is such a big turb-around at fast foods? Well, watch this. "Drive Thru Robot Driver Prank"
