(after all, everyone talks to their bartender)
JTB: Good evening, what can I get for you?
NP: I frequented this bar years ago. I have never seen you before.
JTB: You have probably seen me before but just do not recognize me.
NP: Where would I have seen you before?
JTB: In The Wizard of Oz, I played the part of one of the flying monkeys.
NP: Are you being rude to me?
JTB: Absolutely not. I only gave up acting when I realized I have Super Powers. Now, what can I get for you?
NP: I would like a glass of Ladera Sauvignon Blanc, leave the bottle.
JTB: We do not carry the cheap stuff. May I suggest, Domaine du Salvard Cheverny Blanc?
NP: What do you mean, the cheap stuff? My vineyards supply the grapes for that wine.
JTB: Perhaps you would like to move on to the less dignified but less expensive bar across the street?
NP: Do you not recognize me? Do you not know who I am?
JTB: Actually, I do not. You are wearing three masks, that is probably the reason. You may take them off in this bar.
JTB: Oh, OK. I saw you on the TV yesterday.
NP: Why is your TV on Newsmax rather than CNN? I would like for you to change it to CNN.
JTB: That will never happen in this bar, Nancy. Perhaps you could stop at the airport on the way home, drink some cheap wine and watch CNN?
NP: Just bring me a bottle of the Domaine du Salvard Cheverny Blanc.
JTB: Sure thing. Is there anything else I can do for you?
NP: Yes, indeed. I wish to speak with the owner.
JTB: I’m sorry. He is not here. May I give him a message?
NP: When do you expect him to be back?
JTB: We never know when he might show up. It will be obvious though, even our parking lot will be standing room only.
NP: Where is he?
JTB: He is at Mar-a-Lago playing golf.
NP: Just keep that wine. But, I will be back.
JTB: Come back anytime, Nancy.
JTB: Wait Nancy! You forget to take your stack of masks.
JTB: One more thing, Nancy….you want a free MAGA hat?
