Random Person Night

Random person night at the bar, last night… not many regulars, yet the place was still busy. Compared to the beerfest last week, this week was mostly about darts and pool – that too was as random as the people. Not weird people mind – just… random. Like the chick that was drawn like an anime character but acted like fathead decal whenever her boyfriend was within a 5 feet radius. Or the ex-boyfriend of a bar regular that showed up completely unexpected. Not too random on it’s own but this is the second ex to show up at the same bar in two weeks; she missed the first, found the second. Then spent five minutes of her seven minutes in the place, telling me how little impact his being there had on her, before she ran out the door.

Totally random. A lot of potential for drama, too, yet nothing spun up, which isn’t a bad thing really…

The other night I was standing at one end of the bar. It wasn’t that busy; I was mostly chatting up the regulars, swilling a beer. I looked up and noticed a woman walking up to order something with ears that were all kinds of shiny… I’m a Geek. I notice shiny things. I noticed that these shiny things were a couple of C’s. Yes, there were a couple of C’s under her shirt, but they weren’t the only ones: the ones in her ears had one C stamped over over the other, with one of them flipped backwards: the Chanel logo.

Not the normal sort of shiny you see in a bar in the Pacific Northwest.

New Category: bar

Why a bar category? I’ve been going to the same bar on and off for the last few years… since moving out to WA, actually, since my first apartment was within walking distance to the place. I still leave near by, but I haven’t had a reason to walk home in a while; I just don’t drink long enough when I stop by.

Anyway, I’ve been noticing most weeks that I end up with a story that is generic enough to be shared without embarassing anyone that I know. Usually, anyway… at the bare minimum, I’m betting that these posts will be an often reminder for people that are married that they should be happy to not be dating.

At least that’s how I’m seeing it… time will tell.
