“The winter stout.” The bartender nods and pours.

“Yeah, sorry about that,” he repeats himself.

“It’s cool,” I say, jerking my head in the direction of the hyper-clear television screen showing a round up of scores for the night. It’s a Monday. Hockey’s on. “The Bruins are beating the Islanders.”

“Where are the Islanders?”

“New York. The Bruins are us.”

“I know that,” he says. We both laugh uncomfortably.
