Ex Dish

Happy hour

“What’s wrong, Melinda?” MacKenzie asked her friend as they shared half-price tapas. “You look down today.”

Melinda shrugged. “I am feeling a bit bummed out. I’m so tired of meeting these weirdos on dating sites. I think I’ll just delete my profile everywhere.”

“I can understand that. I wish I could wave a magic wand and conjure up your perfect man.” MacKenzie bit into a spring roll. “Mmm, these are tasty!”

“It’s too bad avo is extra.” Melinda sighed. “I love it, but I have to watch my pennies now that I’m on my own.”

“I hear you, girlfriend. It can be tough to adapt at first. Hey, the bartender is cute and he keeps looking at you.” MacKenzie waved a celery stick in his general direction.

“You’re right.” Melinda smiled. “And I hear they can make pretty good money…”

  1. I don’t think that dating a bartender is a good idea.

  2. Perhaps waving a celery stick is the equivalent of a magic wand.

  3. Cocktail waiters used to make excellent money in the 80’s and the 90’s. By the time the zero contract moved into catering, they are dead broke and then the bottoms fell out of cocktails ….
