From 8/26

The girl who usually mans the counter doesn't appear, nor does anyone else. Alvin lingers, his size 14 feet seeming to grow as long as skis, hoping a member who still uses a card to swipe in enters so the girl will have to materialize to take the card. He'll be able to grin at the member as well. After two interminable minutes, he wills movement back into his feet and skulks past the desk. The only sign of life is that one skinny girl who always ignores him. He grins toward her anyway, happy to be back.
