It’s early on a Sunday evening and you and your significant other decide to go out for a drink, a nice little apéro to bridge the gap until dinner. You say goodbye to your dog and beg him to be good and to please not eat the hand mixer (again) because you really don’t want to have to buy another one (because he loves eating appliances) and off you go.
You walk up to the bar and from the outside you can see the images of a few people sitting at a table, but other than that it’s empty.
And then you walk in…
The Parisian is behind the bar polishing glasses, while The Velvet Underground plays in the background (The Parisian has excellent taste in music). And over at the one and only occupied table sits Child Bride, her sister Angel (14), her sister Wolf (7), and Angel’s friend, all just hanging out, playing Uno.
Three teenagers and a pre-tween. That’s it, no one else.
Five kids playing cards, in a bar, on a Sunday night.
