The wife and I, and the Kid and the BF were at our usual wings/beer sports bar last night, to ease me out of my essentially crappy day. I got there first by myself, the girls were at some jewelry party, BF came from work downstate, and met me first. Then the girls came, and we were hanging out, munching wings, watching baseball. I was flirting lightly with a couple of our regular waitresses, which I get to do when we’re there because they don’t take me seriously and the wife knows that.
Anyway, we were all there when HE came in.
Who’s he? This is he.
We used to live in the next town from him, and have a lot of friends in his town, including several cops, including the ex-chief. So we’ve seen him plenty of times, I even met the missing wife once or twice. Really nice girl, very fond of tight denim, and she made it work for her.
But I digress. You want facts. Ok, yes he was with a date. Cute-ish brunette, maybe 5’7". 24 years old - one of our waitress friends was serving them and carded her. Just after one of the local HS football games ended, a bunch of cheerleaders, players and coaches came in. We joked that maybe he was going to dump the girlfriend for a nice cheerleader more his type.
Everyone in the place knew he was there, and he knew we all knew. I think that place broke the single day record for text messages from a single place. One of the football coaches was at the table by us and was not happy. Kept mumbling to his friends about how he and a few of them ought to inflict some vigilante justice.
So, the kicker to this sorta? This place we were in, is in the same town where this lady is from. The high school team that was in there is the same high school she used to hang out and workout in. And the last time we were there, actually only on Monday - her husband was there.
Wait, it gets better. He sat in the same booth with his kids, as Drew was in last night.
And the same waitress served them.
Aint nobody going to tell me this is a sleepy suburb, not with this kind of action going on.
