Shot and a bottle of beer. A boilermaker. And give the kid a Coke," my father said, ordering no food whatsoever. The next five minutes were something to be got through. I q rank my Coca-Cola with my head down, aware of faces wreathed in smiles. These people could slum for a moment on their horne ground, how amusing! Hateful people, of whom I would soon be one!
