Guys Like Us
“Ever make a mistake that came back to bite you?” Colonel Bob said.
We were in the patio bar at the Dry Gulch Saloon and Steak House, one of our favorite spots. They have a waitress named Deena who knows about my thing for steak tips. She likes Bernie a lot – that’s the kind of thing I can just sniff out – but I don’t think he knows. And that would be way too complicated! There’s Suzie, right? And the whole new Leda situation – is that in To Fetch A Thief?
“Next question,” said Bernie.
Meaning what? The answer had to be no. Bernie had never been bitten, not that I could remember. We’ve had some close calls, of course. I thought right away of that night near the huge saguaro on the border. That’s in To Fetch A Thief, for sure.
Meanwhile Colonel Bob was laughing. “What is it about guys like us?” he said.
Bernie sipped his bourbon. “Born too late,” he said.
Colonel Bob stopped laughing.
