I’ve Never Had That Happen – Exactly
LAST NIGHT, MY WIFE, the charming and lovely Dawn, and I were watching a show on Netflix where the two main characters in the story were thrown out of a bar. Dawn turned to me and asked, “Have you ever been thrown out of a bar?”
I quickly thought back over the decades of my life and answered her truthfully, “A bar? No, I’ve never been thrown out of a bar – exactly.”
That answer did, as you might expect, elicit a call for my definition of the word “Exactly” in this context.
Have I ever been thrown out of a bar? No.
Have I ever been asked to consider my continued presence an unsafe extension of privilege? Yes.
