Ready for the floor

Ready for the floor - Hot Chip

are you ready? ready for the world... if not, how about a little fun? There's whole bunch of things not to be ready for. Fun should never be one of them. So what will it be? I'll think a little fun never hurts until... well it doesn't hurt now, does it?  Fun only stops being fun when it's over. enjoy the scene. it's from the 300's. kisses. m.

What’ll it be?

“What’ll it be?”
“A long slow screw…”
“Screwdriver. Well that’s a thing isn’t it? Those are my spesh-ee-ali-tee!”
“It’s hardly a thing. I’m not really a fan of vodka. And the orange juice…”
“And the orange juice? You can’t go wrong with that.”
“No, I’m afraid you can’t.”
“How about a Mimosa if you’d rather entertain something without…”
“But I prefer the screw.”
“That’s what you said. Are you sure though?”
“As sure as I’ll ever be.”
“You know I don’t get pretty ladies in here often. It’s sort of an occasion. Let me tell you what we could do. I could pop open the champagne and…”
“And we could what? Toast our newfound friendship and sip it through straws. That’s a laugh. Next thing I know you’ll tell me there’s a Shirley Temple I ought to try.”
“Darling, excuse me for saying this but you do you and I’ll do me. Don’t tell me how to do my job. Your assumptions precede your arrogance.”
“Well, well. Little bartender man has a pair does he?”
“Ma’am, I don’t mean any dis…”
“Disrespect? It’s too late for that already. You called me Ma’am. My mother is a Ma’am. Call me Madeline.”
“Madeline is it then? I’m Frank and the one thing you need to understand is that I call it straight here. My bar. My rules.”
“Frank darling, I’m not one who is big on rules. You can call it crooked and sideways for all I care. But get it straight...”
“What’s that exactly?”
“I’m asking you for one thing… Give me a long… slow… comfortable… screw… and don’t fuck it up.”  
“Alright Madeline. Here’s the deal. I’ll try not to fuck up your drink if you can do something for me.”
“Alright Frank. What’ll it be?”
“Try to enjoy yourself.”
