Cheese puffs and sexual pokes

The bill arrived, and I reached for it. "Oh, here we go," Garrett said to Erick. "Just pay it and shut up, Kate." I looked at the total. It was $90. How did that happen?

Erick snatched the bill out of my hand before I could begin itemizing. One thing I do like about our marriage is that we all pay for each other in times of need. These guys ponied up $85 and handed it to me. I put the meal on my card and left a $26 tip.

"Jesus, that is a big-ass tip," Garrett said. "You don't have to leave a tip like that ..."

"Zip it," I retorted. "She was great. And her name is Katy, like me, with a 'Y' and not an 'ie,' which means she's extracool." They rolled their eyes.

We walked up 16th Street toward the Castro. I was laden with food and therefore dilly-dallying, and I heard about it the entire way. Of course, I also complained that I would now have to watch football with them or watch them play a mercenary game on Xbox. But not hanging out with them isn't an option, because they are my best friends.

"Come on, ol' Slowy McGee," Garrett said. I tried to pick up my step a little bit.
