What am I, a piece of meat?
The bar was pretty crowded last night, but there was an opening at the left end of the bar. I sat and ordered one of those mustard beers that I like so much (44). There was a chick standing at the end of the bar smoking a cigarette, and she kept poking her head around the wall and looking at me.
So after about five minutes of this, the girl stepped two feet to her right, which put her right next to me, and just stared. After a few seconds, which to me seemed more like a million years, she asked me if I was okay.
I told her I was just ducky, and asked her why she wanted to know.
She said that I looked like I was deep in thought.
I told her that I'd be sure and stop that.
We told each other our names, and she began rubbing my arm while we talked for a few more minutes.
When she left to go rejoin her friends in the front area, she told me that it was nice to meet me.
That's what she thinks.
The annoying part was that she was standing like a foot away from me, so all I could see of her was her face. She had a pretty face, but I couldn't check out the rest of her without being obvious about it.
I spent the next hour or so just sitting at the bar. I like sitting there sometimes. With my back to crowd, I can let my imagination out to play for a bit, and travel back to a time when Rich O's was a much happier place for me. To a time when she was there. It's a nice feeling.
WomanRepellant came in and took the seat next to me, and we talked for a bit.
I had a Bell's Kalamazoo Stout (315).
After a half-hour or so, I noticed that there were about twenty people completely surrounding me. They were all talking to WomanRepellant. I don't like being closed in, so I picked up my shit and moved over to the throne.
Then, some people came and sat around me and started yakking, so I picked up my shit and went and sat at the island.
I had another Bell's (335), and eventually made my way back to the throne where I talked for a bit with FutureDude and ExBartender.
Came home a little before midnight and shot pool for a while.
