“Who picked this place?” I ask Gert.
It’s our monthly ladies’ night, and somehow we ended up at this
dive with no name somewhere between San Antonio and Summer Creek.
It’s picking up now. When we got here ten minutes ago, only a few guys sat
at a table and one guy at the bar.
Not that I’m here to meet guys. That’s not what ladies’ night is about.
Gert, Jordan, Ashley, and I decided back in college that we wouldn’t lose
touch like so many college besties do. Since we all live in the same area,
we’ve kept up the monthly tradition of ladies’ night for six years now. Sure,
we’ve missed a few months here and there, but for the most part we’ve been
good about keeping the date.
“It was Ashley’s turn,” Gert says. “She wanted to choose something
closer to your new place.”
Ashley’s turn. Now I get it.
I moved last week from Austin to the town of Summer Creek, Texas,
near Del Rio on the border. It’s a ranching town for the most part—not my
jam so much, but I was looking for a way out of my previous situation, so
when the job offer came through, I couldn’t refuse. I don’t know the area
very well yet, but surely there was a better place than this for our monthly
I scan the old movie posters on the walls. “I told you all that I’ll happily
drive up to Austin or San Antonio once a month. I just need a place to
“Absolutely.” Gert pushes a strand of dark hair behind her ear. “You
know you can stay with me. But Ash wanted to do this for you, and Jordy
and I agreed.”
Ashley wanted to do this for me. Right.
Ashley and Jordan excused themselves to go to the bathroom a few
moments ago. I hope I don’t need to go anytime soon. I don’t want to touch
anything in this place. The tabletop shines with grime. Decision made. I’m
keeping myself to one drink tonight.
A middle-aged woman ambles to our table, her blond hair pulled up in a
knot. “What can I get you ladies this evening?”
“I’ll have a glass of Chardonnay,” Gert says. “A nice oaky one.”
“Ernest and Julio okay?” the waitress asks in her low voice.
Gert’s cheek redden. “Uh…sure. Whatever you have is fine.”
She turns to me. “You?”
“Wine? Or a vodka cranberry?”
I cock my head. “I was thinking wine, but you know? A vodka cran
sounds good. Refreshing.”
“Our friends are in the bathroom,” Gert says. “Wait, here they come
Ashley and Jordan take their seats at our small table.
“Oh, good.” Ashley eyes the server. “I feel like tying one on tonight.”
“What’ll it be?” the woman asks them.
“A cosmo,” Ashley says.
She raises her eyebrows. “What’s that?”
Ashley drops her jaw. “A vodka martini sans the vermouth with
cranberry, lime, and Cointreau.”
The server wrinkles her forehead. “Sans?”
“It’s French,” Ashley says. “It means without.”
“Then why don’t you just say ‘without?’”
“Could I just get my cosmo please?”
The server looks to me. “Isn’t she describing what you’re having with a
few fancy words thrown in?”
