Proposed answer to question 20: "I guess I'll just drink enough to forget everyone here."

Proposed response to proposed answer to question 20: "That doesn't make them forget you."

Proposed rejoinder: "Yes, but they'll want to."

Proposed reply: "Well, I won't. Not after this little exchange we had. I mean. Seriously, recluses shouldn't be talking to people at the bar about their plans anyway."

Proposed dismissal: "It wasn't really a plan in the first place as much as just a musing, like, a thinking-out-loud deal. Geez."

Proposed apology: "Oh, yeah, sorry. Just sayin'. You know you really can, though, kind of get some alone time and still have a good time if you just pick up some wine or beer or whatever you like to drink at the store. You don't have to tip bartenders or anything that way. And it's nice to just spend some time with yourself. I really like beer with anything greasy. Sorry, now I'm babbling."

New answer: "Nah, whatever, it's cool. Good bar."

New response: "Yeah, good bar."

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
