Slip of the Tongue
“What’s up after this?” Alex asked, his burger wrapper balled up on his tray. I was still eating.
“Don’t know,” I answered. “Movie?”
He gave me a look before turning his attention to a group of twenty-somethings. I heard the word “Boomer” as they heckled the manager.
I groaned as Alex stood.
“Shit… not again.” I finished my last bite and hurried after him.
As we neared them, the same guy called Alex another name, and he acted like he tripped.
I never saw anyone’s lip swell up so fast, or so many piss themselves after a look from Alex.
