FF – Late Night Drinking

Late Night Drinking

“It’s not there.” His voice startled me. I’d been twenty miles away in another bar, watching Jason walk away. Wondering why.

I looked up. The man was maybe fifty. Salt and pepper good-looking. Like George Clooney but without the smile.

“The answer. It’s not there.”

“Where?” I asked.

“Nothing at the bottom of that glass but glass.” He said, pointing to the drink on the bar in front of me. “Trust me, I’ve finished a few of those.”

In spite of myself, I laughed. “Maybe you just haven’t found the right glass yet.”

“Another one, then? We can look together.”

  1. Dear Jen,

    Could be the beginning a friendship? Or maybe not. At any rate, loved the dialogue. I felt like I was there. Nicely done.



    • It’s funny, I originally thought it was definitely not the beginning of a romance. Now I’m beginning to wonder. Either way, misery likes company, so sad-Clooney is probably better than drinking alone.

    Could this be the DT’s, perhaps I am to sober to know.

  3. Sounds like a promising start. On the face of it. On the other hand…

  4. If he looks like Clooney, how can she resist? Maybe she can bring back his smile 🙂

  5. it wasn’t that obvious, but a great pick up line for sure. 🙂

  6. A story of cautions and possibilities. Excellent.

  7. Kindred spirits methinks! Nice one.

  8. Well, ya never know! Maybe they’ll find something else 🙂

  9. Smooth pick-up line 🙂

  10. Two miserable people are better than one miserable person?? Is that possible?
    Perhaps she should give herself time to heal.

  11. I like how this story goes. I suppose my imagination will have to take it from here. Maybe even magic wine glasses. Nicely done, Jen.

  12. Very casual, but not a line I would use.

  13. Ooh la la! Love that dialogue. Somebody’s going to forget about their troubles…
