Nightcap

scotch otrWell, it’s been a busy week and the 12 yr.old is downloading episodes of Ugly Betty, sucking up all of the bandwidth.

I’m having a nightcap with Joe, the late night bartender tonight. Tomorrow, I’ll host the Clinton Cocktail Hour. I had one nearly every night this week but no one showed up so I let Rico and Florence take the evening off.

But this is a cool place. It’s nice and dark, no ferns. The whiskey is good. The pianist just can’t seem to leave. And Frank is sitting at the end of the bar…

Joe, I’ll have a scotch. Rocks. So you have anything smoky?

Please drink responsibly and tip Joe generously.

Update: Dear Readers, a lot of you have read my “About Me” profile and know that I work in pharmaceutical research. But what you don’t know is that recently, a number of my former colleagues have died from various cancers. I don’t know if there is a correlation. In some cases, there may be, in others, not. It is a high risk profession. Everyday, there are thousands of dedicated scientists around the country and the world who handle hazardous biological and chemical substances, and who assume the risk for you so that you can pull yourself out of depression, lower your cholesterol for your family, and beat another tumor. Unfortunately, the cures do not always come in time for them. I would like to dedicate this nightcap in memory of my most recently deceased former colleagues, Hassan Elokdah and Kevin Haraki who dedicated their lives to the pursuit of cures for others. Thank you for all you have done and may your creator welcome you with open arms.

  1. In honor of a late great Hawaiian, I’ll have a Blue Hawaii. Set me up, Joe. KH, we’ll miss you.

  2. Is that MY BFF? How do I know it’s you? What was the name of the song that we first danced to?

  3. (this is a trick question)

  4. Kevin H. died??? You never told me he was sick. Was it sudden?

  5. Tomorrow Saturday? Or tomorrow Sunday? And what does the clock behind the bar say, I can’t quite make it out?

  6. 5:47pm? My watch says 9:47am! The new joint’s not in Greenwich, UK by any chance, is it? That might account for the shortage of US political foot traffic.

  7. Tonight, 6:oopm, EST. Unfortunately, all times on this site are in GMT. I’ll see if I can change that so as not to confuse you. BTW, I’m going to a dinner party tonight and won’t be posting many comments until later tonight. Can you hold down the fort?

  8. Can’t commit – and it’ll be in the thick of SC returns – and I mightbe caught in a trollstorm of my own around that time.

  9. Hmm. I must have hit one of those “trigger words” … and when I tried again it was a “duplicate post”.
