When MacLife opened in Boise, we were a bit intimidated. Apple computers, apparently, only attract geniuses, and chances are, if we have to talk to one of them, it's because we don't know something and, ergo, are not geniuses ourselves. They totally redeemed themselves, however, when we wandered in, shoulders hunched, fully prepared to feel like village idiots during their grand opening and discovered two piping-hot chafing dishes: one full of meatballs and the other full of mac and cheese. The Mac-and-cheese play on words wasn't much of a stretch, and we had to assume the meatballs were served because they begin with an M (and are standard chafing-dish fare). Geniuses? Maybe not linguistically, but serve us a bowl of mac and cheese and you have customers for life.
