As you know, my buddy Hoagy lives in a lean-to and pretty much just feeds the raccoons and bears all day. Lots of time to ponder cool.
His new 'thing' is cigars on buddy nite.
And I play along.
So anyhow....a few weeks ago we're having dinner out on this patio of a resturant and after we're all done Hoag asks the waitress if it's okay if we light up a couple of cigars. Here is how that conversation went.
HOAG: "S'okay if we light up a couple of stoogies?"
WAITRESS: "I'm sorry sir but you can't, it's against state law"
HOAG: "But we're outside..."
WAITRESS: "I'm sorry sir but it's still against state law to smoke on the premises of a restaurant."
HOAG: "What would happen if we lit 'em up anyhow?"
WAITRESS: "I'd have to get the manager."
HOAG: "What would he do if we kept smokin' 'em?"
WAITRESS: "He'll call the police."
HOAG: "What if we shoot and kill the policemen?"
HOAG: "Listen Sister, why don't you just save the lives of two cops and let us smoke these puppies?"
WAITRESS: "Would you like some more wine or dessert or something....maybe an ashtray?"
Like I said....this may or may not have happened.
