The young bartender, owner's boyfriend, pulls at his new goatee and scans the newspaper ads. He is not here by choice this or any other afternoon.

The cook has no one to cook for here but four children at home. He watches a movie made for American TV and dubbed for Polish and laughs and wonders what will happen. I bet he doesn't smile like this at home.

The only customer flips through a stack of useless paper at the bar and watches them.
