With Danny At Norms

I met Danny at Norms on the weekends
it's a cheap coffee shop that serves
decent apple pie and good steaks
sometimes there is a long wait for a table
other times we hustle right in

Danny was waiting for me at a table tonight
he waved when I came in, ten minutes late
anyways, there was a lot of traffic but
that's no excuse, I got on the road late
busy playing around on the computer

Danny talked about playing poker
he had a lucky day at the table the other day
and today everything went bad
I wanted to tell him to check his astrology
but I just sat and listened

Danny always orders the porterhouse and then
takes the bone home for his dog Jake

I always get the New York Steak with a Caesar's salad
and a baked potato.

Danny and I are the best of friends
he was a big drinker back in the day
those days are over and now he just
complains about smoking too many cigars

it's always nice to see him.

    Love this one. Everybody, at times, needs a friendly ear, even if just minor stuff is spoken about. Congrats on the selection daver
