A PUNDERFUL ENCOUNTER
The right time.
The darkness, and the sound of the rain.
The smoke-filled bar, the clinking of glasses, the fake smiles, dirty deals & even dirtier deeds.
I suppose I'd seen it a hundred times before, but tonight... something was different.
That girl at the bar... she didn't look right... she didn’t “fit-in”... like she didn't belong here.
Too classy. Nice shoes, nice hair, a personality you could bounce a quarter off, and she was reading a book!
I decided to find out for myself...
So I ambled over, slid onto the bar stool right beside her, flipped open a fresh pack and held it out to her...
"Yes, I know."
A comedienne huh? This might be tougher than I thought.
"What ya readin?"
"It's a book about anti-gravity"
"Yes, actually - I can't put it down."
"I guess you're a Scientist huh?"
"Actually, at the moment I'm an unemployed scientist."
"I have a few jokes about unemployed people but it doesn't matter because none of them work."
"I thought you were going to tell me a joke about Chemistry?
That might have got a better reaction."
"Well, I'm no photographer but I can sure picture us together.
Do I know you? ‘Cause you sure look a lot like my next girlfriend."
"I was going to give you a Nasty look, but I see you already have one, maybe your Gene Pool could use a little Chlorine?"
"Hey, beauty is in the eye of the beer holder! If I had a dollar for every dame that found me unattractive, they would eventually find
"I thought that you might say something like that."
"Psychic huh? You know... If a short psychic prisoner broke out of jail, then you'd have a small medium at large!"
"I think I need a large drink!"
So, I ordered a couple of large shots and I nodded towards the nearest empty booth. She moved like silk in the breeze, and the whole bar
stopped to watch. By the time she had slipped into her seat you coulda heard a pin drop.
Then this wise-guy shouts over:
"Hey babe, Can I have your picture so I can show Santa Claus what I want for Christmas?"
So I turn around and give him the evil eye and he melts into the background, but when I turned back around there's this huge dame standing there, so
"Behind every big ugly woman there is a slim beautiful woman.
No seriously, you're in the way.
When God said "Let There Be Light!" did he ask you to move over?"
And I squeezed past, and sat back down beside the babe.
"You know, You're so beautiful you made me forget my pick up line."
"Jeeze, why are men always so pre-occupied with pick-up-lines and sex??"
"Actually, My therapist says I have a preoccupation with vengeance. But, WE'LL SOON SEE ABOUT THAT!!"
"You know that tingly little feeling you get when you like someone? That's your common sense leaving your body."
"Well, I tend to think that relationships are a lot like algebra.
Haven't you ever looked at your X and wondered Y?"
"Yeah, If I ever need a Heart Transplant, I'd want my Ex's because it's never been used."
"When you looked at me, I got lost in your eyes. But I also get lost in most department stores, so I wouldn't read too much into
"HaHa, I think you've maybe had too many drinks..."
"Well, thanks for explaining the word "many" to me, it means a lot."
And that's how the night went by... We couldn't take our eyes off each other. The bar emptied and we were left there all alone, just us and the
bartender who was trying to cash up and go home.
Finally, I looked deep into her eyes and I said:
"You never did tell me your name."
and she replied:
Then she smiled, stood up, slid out of that bar and disappeared into the night...
Nothing but the darkness, and the sound of the rain...
