  • The group surveyed each other's weapons of choice. All seemed adequate...except the guy in the Cavs jersey with socks and sandals on. He was giggling to himself while saying "leaf blower go brrrrrrr". The rest of the group frowned in unison and started walking north.

  • They sat. 'Finally!', she thought while grabbing the menu in desperate search for a stiff drink. As her eyes moved from the menu to the waiter she realized that the guy looked somewhat familiar. 6'4", curly hair, a well groomed mustache, and an Hawaiian shirt. "HOLY....."
