We’re Even

Guy rolls in the bar in a wheelchair. One of those cool ones. Streamline. He’s a good-looking guy. He has one of those hipster haircuts, short on the side. 

He orders Jameson on the rocks. I get it for him, set it down so he can reach it. He says, thanks, we make the transaction. 

Later he comes up for another drink. I say, man. I like the haircut. He says, thanks!  I say, I’m jealous. Obviously. 

I rub my bald head for effect. 

He says, well. You have your legs, so we’re even. 

I laugh, say, God is cruel, isn’t he?

He says, yeah. He is.
