People I Meet in Bars
        I'd rather read in a bar than a library. Here's who I meet there.
        • #1: Jane, the lonely girl who spoke in all caps.
        • #2: Jay, the man whose one true love was 80-proof.
        • #3: Anne, the girl who didn't know why she ditched her fiance.
        • #4: Jason, the guy who thought he was hot shit.
        • #5: Rick, the man in the suit who didn't want to be The Scotch Guy.
        • #6: Stan, the populist guy with a creed and a smile.
        • #7: Gwen, the ex-girlfriend.
        • #8: Jeff, the half-orphan who just wanted to smoke.
        • #9: Meg and Jim, the happy couple.
        • #10: Sheila, the baker who'd rather make wedding pie than wedding cake.
        • #11: Hank, the carpenter with the soul of a poet.
        • #12: Greg, the hesitant drinker and passionate godfather.
        • #13: T.J., the nine-year-old Spider-Man fan (not a bar, though)
        • #14: Mary Jane, Ken, Jenny, Tom, Carly, et. al., the other fake cowboys and our ringleader (also not a bar)
        • #15: Bob, the sad drunk.
        • #16: Wade, Dustin, and their friend MJ, they who would rather smoke than drink.
        • #17: Emily, the actress.
        • #18: Emily (again), the actress who didn't care to be written about.
        • #19: the dude who wouldn't reveal his name.
        • #20: Michelle, the pretty girl looking for something she won't find in her own backyard.
        • #21: Seth, the guy that punched me in the face.
        • #22: John and Up, fans of zombies and poor taste.
