The SECOND most awesome thing in my apartment building is the old Greek lady who walks her little terrier Dmitri (best dog name ever). She'll tell him, in the thickest Greek accent you can muster, "Come Dmitri - do your business."  The MOST awesome thing is that, now knowing I'm a musician, she calls me "Maestro." But it comes out "My-YAY-stro", which makes it even better.
