We arrived early for our dinner with our old friend John, so we decided
to stop in at a pub for a quick one. While Jen was at the bar
I noticed one of the women at the next table trying to fill
a Zippo lighter. She didn't appear to know what she was doing,
and looked too drunk to be able to do it if she did.
I offered to help, and thus began one of the funnest half hours
of the trip. They were Scottish flight attendents, they told us through
thick Glaswegian accents. They had missed their
flight, and asked if they could stay with us for the night, plied
us with liquor, borrowed my glasses and hat, and begged us not
to leave for our dinner with John.
"A' ya' nevah beene ta Glazgow?" Zoe asked at one point.
"Never," I replied as I tossed back a shot of tequila. "But it
just went way up on my list!"
