The Grand Opening

“Crap,” said Mitch.

“What’s the matter?” Frank asked.

Basically, we’re in trouble,” Mitch said. “The health inspector came by and said that our bar has too high a percentage of bacteria and he gave us a failing grade and is closing us down until we disinfect this whole joint.”

“Dammit,” Frank said. “We haven’t even had our grand opening yet. We can’t afford to shut this place down before we even open up our doors to what will no doubt be great acclaim. Can you grab me some cleaning supplies from the back room so we can use it to swipe down the bar?”

Mitch went to the back room and came out with a couple of bottles of Barmecide disinfecting cleanser and some rubber gloves and set then down on the bar.

“We’re gonna get this place spotless,” Frank said. “I’ll set up an appointment for the inspector to come back tomorrow so we can pass and get approval to be open for business this weekend for our grand opening party.”

“Let’s do this, Frank,” Mitch said, donning the rubber gloves.

      Sounded like a made up word, so I defined it as something one would use to cleans and kill bacteria from a bar. Made sense to me at the time!

    I guess it was inevitable, give the root of the word. We both had fun cheating as well, I see.
