TIPS FOR BARTENDERS from (me!) sandra, tvgp

i'm not going to get the details write, but goes something like this:

my dad,

he has this story he loves to share from days gone by.

he's divorced, in his 30's i think, and out in san francisco galavantin' around with a bachelor friend of his

they befriend this coulple from (the midwest?)in a pub -a doctor and his wife..

offer to take their picture

and then share with this young, innocent couple from the midwest, how they are professional pantyhose salesmen..

and then the b.s. just gets thicker as the night (and drinking) progress.

they way my dad tells it /which is much better than i'm doing here..

they also convinced this couple that they were photographers for playboy magazine..

and i'm sure the retelling of this story over the years has increased the spice-factor..

my dad just laughs and smiles as he retells this story.. so proud of himself for completely bullshitting this couple



in his most recent retelling, i said, "hey dad..

what makes you think he was really a doctor from the midwest?"


without meaning to, i completely (but temporarily) drained all the flavor from one of his favorite stories

"oh, no, no, no," he tells me.. "they were innocent. we had 'em hook, line and sinker"


***

it's commonly said you can't bullshit a bullshitter

and less said, but equally fun


to let a bull shit sometimes
without noticing the odor.

let's call this, "tips for bartenders"
