There is a story there........

That's what I used to say when I saw something that did not look quite right. Like when you see a totally gorgeous girl with an overweight older man. True love? Probably not. Currency exchange? Maybe. There is a story there.

Yesterday went and had lunch at one of my favorite watering holes. This was after walking around a lot and seeing the sights. Came in, the bar was empty except for a guy and girl. There were people at the tables, but I decided to sit at the bar.

The guy and the girl were having an argument. Like walking in late to a movie I had missed some of the key plot developments. In a nutshell the girl, who appeared to be an American and the guy,who was a Brit, were discussing the girl's love life. In rather loud tones.

Guy:" Don't lie to me. You jumped his bones the first time you were with him. You can peddle that line somewhere else, but not with me. I talked to _____ and she told me so."

Girl:" Well what about you! You sleep around all the time."

Guy: " I slept with _______, and ________ as well as ________. I also slept with _____. However the difference between me and you is that I don't feel as if I have to apologize for it. You want to be a tramp but not think you are one."

Girl: (voice rising to almost shouting...)"That's not what I said! Don't try to lecture me!"

Guy: " You still jumped his bones the first night right? It does not matter that you did but don't get all high an mighty about it. Accept it. Check please".

Girl: " Just shut up and give me my money."

The whole time this is going on, the rest of us patrons are trying to keep our eyes averted and look at our newspapers or beers, but you just had to keep looking back to see what else was going to happen.

Like I said, there is a story there.
