“I want the curvaceous blonde at the end of the bar,” Jason said. “You can have the skinny brunette she’s with.”
“No way, dude,” Mike said. “I want the blonde. You can have the brunette.
Jason pulled out a quarter from his pants pocket. “I’ll flip you for the blonde,” he said.
“Minimum two out of three,” Mike said.
“Deal. Call it.” Mike called heads. Jason flipped the coin. It was tails.
“Damn,” Mike said. “Now it’s my turn to flip,” he said, grabbing the quarter from Jason.
“Tails,” Jason said. Miked flipped it and it was heads. Jason gabbed the quarter back from Mike. “Okay, this flip is for all the marbles.”
“That’s kind of a mixed metaphor, but whatever. I call heads on the final flip.”
Heads it was and Mike was thrilled. The two guys got up off their stools and headed over to where the two girls — the blonde and the brunette — were seated.
“Shit,” Jason said.
“Just our luck,” Mike said, and the two of them headed back to the bar seats they had just abandoned.
Meanwhile, Christie and Maryanne started giggling. “That was a great idea you had for the two of us to embrace with a passionate kiss,” Christie said. That definitely curtailed the plans of those two losers who were back there flipping coins over us.”
“Yes, it worked great,” Maryanne said. “We dodged a bullet, for sure.” Then Maryanne licked her lips, looked deep into Christie’s eyes, and said, “And I liked it.”
