After the scuffle ended at Andy’s table, I asked the guy they called Bart what he’d like to drink. “McPherson’s” he replied. Then Mariana said, “Hanna, this is Janie, and she’s thirsty!” What a beauty. I whispered to Janie, “What’s a nice girl like you doing in a place like this with that ol’ reprobate?” I fetched their drinks, and waited for her story.
Janie said, “What do you mean, ‘reprobate’? He’s not quite that bad.”
