Overheard at Table 2: Lucky and Otis Discuss Being Men of a Certain Age
Otis: I don't even know why you're even bringing this up.
Lucky: Well, you know, a guy's gotta cover all bases.
Otis: Well, even so, you won't have THIS base covered.
Lucky: That's what I'm saying! If my wife died or left me, I'd never know if a chick was really into me. I mean, how could I ever be sure?
Otis: If a chick was into you, you can be sure it would be for you. Chicks who aren't the woman who built a life with a guy are only into a guy if he's good looking or has money.
Lucky: Right. Someone they think that can give them security. And even women who helped a guy build his fortune is probably only in it for the money if the guy's not good looking, because that money is also HER money.
Otis: Right. Which is why it would suck to have to start over, to be sure.
Lucky: But it wouldn't be too hard to tell for both of us. Because if a chick was into either of us, it would have to be for our personalities, because we ain't rich and neither of us are that good looking any more.
Otis: Speak for yourself, homie.
