The Next Table
Two of the men this Monday night are in office clothes. Although one has removed his tie. The third is even in jeans! But the shirt is top quality office good, and the remote earphone and mike for his phone bow across the belly that betrays too many business lunches.
One is naturally thin. The other two are over weight, but trimmed and hardened by their clothes and haircuts. They all wear glasses.
The woman has no glasses. She is chubby and comfortable. Her hair is soft. Her clothes contrast with theirs. The have been talking over each other all night. But all three stop when she talks... even her husband.
Does she stay at home, protected by his salary, free of the world, and play bridge or whatever it is eastern suburb matrons do? Or does she know something we men don't?Share
