What amazes me in all the stories I have read on this topic (and I have read many), how each one is so different. And this one certainly is that -- different. I am not sure I quite understood it, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't good. I am not familiar with the kind of life described here (the bar scene)...Helen

An Irish pub and a tall tale...and a very unique look at the topic. Good job.
