“J.J.! Are you kidding me? You know I only drink top shelf at this joint!”

**********

“I’m telling you, this is the stuff! Boss man’s old football buddy bottles it just for us.”

**********

“J.J my boy, when you are done arguing with my sister here, would you set me up please?”

**********

“You know I adore you sweetie, but you’re starting to make me feel a little crowded…”

**********

Silently, to himself, “Uh oh…”

**********

“You think…”

**********

“Yes, she’s definitely ditching him.”

**********

“Poor guy.” Silently, to himself: “Am I gonna be her only boyfriend now?”

**********

“…aaaand then he drinks the champagne out of her shoe – right here at the bar- and hands the shoe back to her, and then he leaves! Just like that!”

**********

“Oh my god! Only our guy Smiley!” They broke the mold!”

**********

Silently, to himself: “This crowd is right out of some screwball artist’s wild imagination.”
