The woman sitting next to Doug looked like Slutty Swiss-Miss. Her costume was low cut (even *I *was checking out "what was going on") with a flared peplum and rick-rack trim. It was weird yet fascinating. Yet weird. The birthday boy just got engaged and The Ring was shown. It's funny to be out with couples when something like that occurs. "Heidi" and her boyfriend (obviously not engaged, nor happy about it) bristled as I got ready to extend my ring as well. But the vapors hit quickly so I got all interested in my salad instead. Socializing is hard!
