I went out with a friend..a guy friend…it wasn’t a date..I made that clear. I told him I would pay my own way..I was so relieved (but not surprised) when he grabbed the check(s).
He’s an old friend.
I’m not sure what we ever had in common.
He didn’t like the restaurant I picked out (a tap bar) “Bunch of Yuppies”. The beer wasn’t very good, he said.
He told me about an encounter he had in the park with some young people (remember…I LOVE young people! I really wanna be one!)
He: Grumble grumble. Get off my lawn!
We went for an after dinner drink.
I let him choose.
He didn’t like that beer either..”come to think of it”…he said…”I kind of liked that craft beer”.
I was home early.
Or rather…right on time.
But maybe there is hope for me yet. I could try virtual love and buy my own dinner 😉 .
