The Shallow Man Diaries (Part 18): Monday Night @ Zuni

So last night I met up with the usual suspects at Zuni in Greenbelt 5. Predictably, I ordered the Barbecued Baby Back Ribs for the main course and the Triple Chocolate Terrine for dessert.

“Bring us a pitcher of beer every seven minutes until someone passes out,” Iñigo
 tells the waiter. “Then bring one every ten.”

We are discussing the merits of my chosen profession: ADVERTISING.

“Can you tell me what a woman’s body has to do with selling beer?” Daphne asks.

“All right, since men buy beer, advertisers have to cater to what we want,” I explain to Daphne. “And hold on to your corncob pipe—WE LIKE PRETTY WOMEN.”

“Pretty women sell beer,” Sid says. “Ugly women sell kitchenware.”

“Pretty women: Cars. Ugly women: Minivans,” Clyde says.

“Pretty women make us BUY beer and ugly women make us DRINK beer,” I say.

As if on cue, a Pretty Young Thing in a red bustier dress passes by our table. Predictably, Clyde, Sid and Iñigo turn to ogle her. It’s a guy thing. They can’t help themselves.

“It must be a drag to be a slave to the male sex drive,” Alyssa says dryly.

“It’s not just about sex,” I say.

“Oh, you want to start a book club with her?” Alyssa asks; brows arched.

“You know, people perceive you as somewhat...”

“Tempestuous?” Alyssa asks, cutting me off.

“‘Heinous Bitch’ is the term used most often,” I say.

Point, set, and match: Joey.
