It's kind of corny, but I'm all ears
I can’t say I was disappointed when my good friend called and invited me to lunch. It was one of the slowest days I’d experienced up to that point, and the heat was stifling. He inquired as to my availability for an afternoon endeavor with him and his fiancee at the Park Tavern, and I told him I was going to give it one more hour with hopes that my fortunes would suddenly take a turn for the better. They didn’t.
