My next?
Your next drink.
Oh, well, sure.
What are you drinking?
A beer will do – any beer. Whatever you’re drinking.
I don’t know many women that like beer.
I have a taste for it.
A beer it is. L, could we get two over here? (Sure, man.)
I’m Erin.
Carey. A pleasure.
Not yet, but maybe soon.
Maybe. Winding down from the working day?
You could say that.
I know this’ll sound lame, but: come here often?
First time.
Makes sense. I’m a regular.
A regular what?
A regular here. At Gallagher’s.
Yeah, I like the place.
Just a funny mix of riff-raff and raff-riff.
Yeah, raff-riff. When you think of riff-raff, just think of the opposite. Raff-riff.
Hah, clever, Carey.
So what do you do?
I work with people. More than I’d like.
I hear that. People, man. People can get you down.
I only see them getting up, but it’s always going down, sure.
Staying long?
Probably ’til the end of this drink. I guess it depends.
We’ll see. What’s with the wings?
The wings?
Yeah. Coming from – or going to – a costume party or something?
Sort of.
