The View from Behind the Chair
In this edition: late dates, curious confabs, and no rest for the weary
The View from the Behind the Chair is the only place you'll hear the things women only tell their hairdressers.
In the first chair, a late-shift hash-slinger tells me that one of our favorite confirmed bachelors was huddled up at the Huddle House with a local lady on a night when The Powers That Be might like to know their whereabouts. My source says neither of these two golden agers are regular late night diners, I suppose it could be a joint bout of insomnia or maybe a sudden desire to see and be seen.
In the second chair, a certain someone at our scrumptious up-scale, down-home eatery says that same very single sundries seller was shoulder-to-shoulder with a certain slap-happy senora over a spinach steak salad recently. It seems the twosome were having an intense conversation about that recently-deceased scoundrel who's been the subject of scandalous speculation. Curious, n'est-ce pas?
And in the third chair, school's out for summer, but not all is quiet on the academic front, according to a beleaguered worker bee in the know. An upcoming session spotlighting Oxford's favorite son has boxers in a bunch in some sectors. Come on, profs! It's summertime and the living is easy. Give the staff a break. May I suggest a spa day?
I'm just hearing, and I'm just saying.
