Tequila Sunset


Scene: 1997, Bar Tending.

I didn't even know they let 19-year-olds bar tend.

We are slammed and I'm feeling like Tom Cruise on his first night bar tending at TGIF in Cocktail.

"YOU BITCH! WHY DIDN'T YOU JUST TELL ME IT WAS A RUM AND COKE!!???"

I reach into the mug cooler to retrieve a beer mug and drop it back into the cooler as I'm picking it up.
-
Without looking I stick my hand back into the cooler. Obviously a bad idea.

Do you know how hard it is to permanently remove your fingerprint? I do. You have to cut DEEP.

I tuck my now slightly lighter thumb in my hand and head out of the bar to seek medical attention.

As I leave the bar I hear one of the other bartenders yell:

"HEY, WHO THE FUCK SPILLED GRENADINE ALL OVER EVERYTHING?"

Proper response:

"IT ISN'T GRENADINE, IT'S BITTERS! TASTE BEFORE YOU HOLLA, BEE-YOTCH!"

Not having fingerprints could be a plus in certain quarters, just sayin'...

It's a good thing I was never a bartender. Besides I had way too much fun on the other side of the bar. Or on it. Never mind.

Oh my god, is that why grenadine is so sweet?

Outasight! Here is a name for your 1st film on this topic, "Grenadine Wishes and Caviar Dreams"

When you open it, hire me as the women's toilet janitor and pay me with beer. After that, you can tell sweet Irish poems standing on top of a bar with a hand me down couch nailed to it from the Oprah set.
