Oh hell, goodbye, she said.

Wait, you just got here, he said.

I know, but this just isn’t working.

C’mon. Stay longer. Only one drink; just one.

One drink.

No. I mean it.

Scotch? Vodka?

Too strong.

Beer? Ale?

Too bitter.

Merlot?

Headaches.

Chardonnay?

Hate the taste.

Zinfandel?

Too sweet.

Tea?

No caffeine.

Water, then?

Bottled only.

Perrier?

Evian.

Oh hell, goodbye, he said.
