Overheard at 192 East Walton

192 East Walton Bar, Left (2021). Acrylic on wood. Artwork and text copyright Danny Grosso.

From the left and down the line:

Silently, to himself: “Six o’clock and we’re already slammed here. Whatzit gonna be like at eight?”

**********

“Hey, slow down, big guy, you’re already doing the 2 am lean…”.

**********

“Shaddup I’m fine…I think.”

**********

“Are you kidding me with this guy’s face?!”

**********

“Really, buddy? I saw you walk in with the flower – you don’t have to ham it up any more than that.”

**********

“I came all the way from Zanzibar to give this bloom, and myself, to you.”

**********

“Ha! Zanzibar! He means the corner bar!”

**********

“One more martini, one more cuppa joy.”

**********

“Really, Arthur, won’t you marry me so you can move into my apartment and keep me sauced all day?”

**********

“Remember that Star Trek episode when the plants had feelings? You think the olives get drunk swimming in the booze?”

**********

“You are wise, my old friend. Yes, they may become pickled, but your concern is misplaced. You should be worried about yourself swimming in the booze.”

**********
