      ( 8:29 AM ) teahouse

The other day I tried to meet a friend at Serendipity 3, this dessert place on the Upper East Side.

This place has always been popular, but lately it's been ridiculous (that annoying movie made it even more famous).

Now the lines and waits are notoriously long.

When my friend and I arrived, at 2 p.m. on a Tuesday, we hoped the wait wouldn't be bad.

We were wrong. There was a line of giggly women all the way out the door and onto the street. The surly male host told us, "The wait is 2 hours or so."

Or so? Is that like, 2 hours, give or take an hour? For a cup of tea? WTF???

I said to my friend, as we left and went to another cafe, "Why are these people waiting this long for dessert? There'd better be a guy under the table going down on you while you have your cake."

She deadpanned, "Yeah, but 2 hours? It shouldn't take that long, should it?"
