Six for you, and six more for you, too.
Well, John, Sharon, I’ve had a great time, but hey, it’s getting late, so I better be on my way.
“Well, thanks for coming, Rick.”
“Yeah, always good to see you, old buddy.”
Likewise! Now, where did I leave my bag? Ah, right here! Well, we’ll have to get together again sometime soon! Bye, guys!
“Oh, not so fast, Rick.”
Did I forget something?
“No, we’ve just gotta check your bag real quick.”
Ha! That’s funny, guys! Have a good night, okay?
“Rick. We’re serious.”
Wait, what?! This isn’t a joke?
“Not a joke at all.”
But you guys, it’s me: your best friend, Rick!
“Don’t be offended, Rick. We do this to everyone.”

“I mean, it would just be terrible to lose a bottle of the 2010 Barranc del Rei Monastrell with those aromas of ripe cherry and spice, that soft and fruity mouth feel, and those flavors of black plum and raspberry.”
“Now honey, don’t forget the 2010 La Tribu Grenache Blend with its deep ruby color, complex red and black fruits on the nose, that layer of spice, not to mention the medium body, notes of ripe fruit, and great balance of acidity and tannins.”
“So go ahead, hand over your bag.”
No! I refuse! This is not how you treat friends, you understand? You don’t go around accusing people of…”
“What was that noise that just came from your bag, Rick?”
