After work today, Miles, John and I went to a party for a
semi-retired partner at Johnâ€™s firm who recently won the World Senior Badminton
Doubles Championship. There was a buffet
meal and free drinks so it was a good time.
I talked with some a couple of the American partners for a while and it
was interesting to get their take on
After that, John and I went with Mike, and American partner to a bar nearby and Mike bought a couple rounds. It was an outside seating area and there was a live band so that was fun. After Mike left, John and I were going to have one more round, when the band started talking to us. They wanted one of us to come up and sing. I still hadnâ€™t had enough to drink for that to happen, but John had and he also plays some guitar so they let him borrow one of theirs. He played a Jack Johnson song and the drummer and bass guitar (despite having no clue what song he was playing) did a great job of backing him up. They even caught the change. After that, I caught a cab back to my apartment.
