I’m at the bar, pickin up martini glasses, and this gentleman comes out of the bathroom, shirt, tie, slacks, lookin damn sharp. I tell him, dang, dude, I like that tie clip you got. That’s the thing. Tie clips. So hot right now.
He looks down at his tie. You like this? I say, yeah, it’s cool. He takes it off his tie. Here ya go. What? Yeah, take it. I work at Banana Republic. I got another one at work. Oh, I couldn’t possibly take it from you. No, I want you to have it. Holy shit, man, I say. That’s so kind of you. Sure, he says. Well…I gotta buy you a martini for that. Nope, he says. No need. Wow. Thanks, man. You just made my night. He turns back to his friend, and I go pick up more martini glasses.
Now I just have to figure out when to wear a tie.
From my heart to yours,
Clint Curtis. Bartender.
