Happy New Year

Aren’t artists great?

I went into two of my pubs of choice tonight.

The first one has pleasant staff who are always friendly and cordial to us and what’s more, they talk to all of us very nicely. We congregate there and spend a lot of money in the course of the year. It’s owned by a well-known painter.

The second one also has pleasant staff who are always friendly and cordial to us. What’s more, they talk to us nicely and we tend to congregate there. We spend a lot of money in the course of the year. It’s owned by business people.

Tonight, most of us enjoyed the night in the second establishment, who recognised our years-long patronage by providing music, food and a couple of complimentary drinks which didn’t cost much in the great scheme of things.

How did the artist-publican acknowledge our years-long patronage?

He didn’t.
