Because i went to sit at a cafe with my daughter yesterday and i went to a neighborhood in in l. a. which has turned from an arts neighborhood into beverly hills. The shop that we went to it was a pudding store that did not accept cash. They only do it via apple. Pay and it's a store. And i'm not exaggerating when i say it's twenty five dollars for a bowl of pudding. Don't really know what to say about that. But it's never good to lease putting you should always be able to afford to buy it but this is really interesting changing neighborhood and community and how how our sense of community and reentering. The world is changing.
