Woman next to me at the bar ordered a beer and a steak (medium). Then closed tab with a hundred dollar bill before getting her food

September 16th, 2013, 7pm

It was 27.2°C with few clouds. The breeze was light.

She walked outside after settling her tab, but then returned to the bar and had her dinner. She was in her late 30s - early 40s and had a stylized (almost Egyptian) sun tattoo on her upper arm.

She seemed like a person who often made the same mistake twice; if not many times. Maybe I’m being harsh… life isn’t easy.

The bar / restaurant had a “sports” motif, with bartenders and waitresses (almost young women) wearing football jerseys and shorts. The place had dozens of TVs showing baseball and Monday Night Football. It was my first day back in town and didn’t want to cook dinner, so I ended up at this place.

I later saw her outside as I left the bar, she was sitting on a bench smoking a cigarette.

Maybe she was waiting on a friend, but I think something more seedy was going on.

David Wade, Paul, Craig and Cassie said thanks.
