I sat at the bar



I sat at the bar
What a boring life I lead
The bartender's friend

Talk is quite mundane
Loneliness, a two edged sword
I'm not home alone

I breathe in a scent
Dark hair, long legs and Chanel
Beats television

So I nod at her
She grins at me and sits down
I buy her a drink

  2. For one who can only stumble to my own fridge/mini bar this sounds like quite an exciting life - i hope the evening didn't disappoint

  5. Sure she isn't on TV? The long legs thing made me think of a model.
