Adam took his name seriously. He knew he was the first among men. His hairline was eroding faster than the Galveston coastline in his home state of Texas, but he was a sharp dresser and a smooth talker. Ladies loved his drawl.
At a Two-for-Tuesday happy hour, he sent a Cosmopolitan to a stunner in the corner. She stopped by to thank him.
“Can I tell you a secret?,” he asked. She nodded.
“You remind me of a young Scarlett Johansson.”
“Want to hear my secret?” she whispered. He cocked his head.
“You remind me of my old grandpa.”
