Zeni and Timmy meet at an out of town legal seminar and are having dinner together with some colleagues. He starts by saying:
A waitress then circled our table, taking drink and appetizer orders. Anthony turned his attention to the cute, blond, marketing representative sitting next to him while Timmy turned to me and asked, “So, tell me about yourself. Have you ever been married? Any children?”
“No to both. How about you?”
“Really? I can’t believe that. Ever been engaged?”
“You first. You never answered my question,” I said, diving into a mound of sautéed mussels.
“Okay, okay, married once. My ex-wife was an engineer. She’s a great lady, but we just didn’t see eye to eye. I have two children with her.”
“Are you involved with anyone now?”
“I’ve been dating the same lady on and off for the past five years. She’s nice, but things have been rocky between us.”
“I’m sorry to hear that. Hopefully, everything will work out.”
“Eh, who knows? We’ve been down this road many times before,” he said, taste-testing the Stags’ Leap Winery Merlot, which the waitress had just uncorked and poured into his glass.
