Zeni and Timmy meet at an out of town legal seminar and are having dinner together with some colleagues. He starts by saying:
“So, tell me about yourself. Have you ever been married? Any children?” Timmy asked, taking a bite of his vegetable ratatouille.
“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 the mound of sautéed mussels I ordered as an appetizer.
“Okay, okay, married once. My ex-wife was an engineer. She’s a great lady and all, but we didn’t see eye to eye about a lot of things. I have two children with her.”
“I’ve been dating the same lady on and off for the past five years. She’s nice and all, but things have been really rocky between us for quite a while now.”
“I’m sorry to hear that. Hopefully, everything will work out.”
“Eh, who knows? We’ve been down this road so many times before that it’s grown old,” he said, taste-testing the Stags’ Leap merlot, which the waitress had just uncorked and poured into his glass.
“How’s the wine, sir?” the waitress asked Timmy as she stood behind his chair holding the bottle of wine.
