I walk in, I greet, I seat. I get my fix, I drink. I listen to the music, to the talk. I walk into the talk. I talk, and I drink and I laugh, loud. And I drink, and I talk.
Štamgast M says and gives something to the owner. Something I don't catch because I'm drinking my drink and talking my talk.
The music changes. Štamgast M looks at me with a half smile. Do I know the tune? Of course I do! Don't Fucking Cry For Me Argentina! How could I not!
I laugh. That tear that wanted to roll down thinks it better. It'd look silly.
Štamgast F now takes the piss. Again. He knows well how much piss he can take. He knows well how much piss he'll get back.
And I drink. And I listen. And I talk. And I laugh. And, by the way, I'm Štamgast P. And I'm Max. Ahoj.
And fuck the world! One more it is! Reality calls. Reality can wait a bit longer. It always has.
It was the beer that first brought me here. It's not the beer that keeps me coming back.
