Dám si jedno pivo prosím

My thanksgiving breaks are usually meh. Friends head home to visit their families, restaurants are closed and the weather is dreary.

A friend once told me that every woman he saw in Prague could have been on the cover of a fashion magazine.

This thanksgiving break might not be so meh after all.

Cheque please

"Do you read a lot?"
"Street signs, mostly. What about you?"
"I like reading so much I took a job at the library."
"That's a bit excessive. What's your favorite book?"
"A Farewell to Arms."
"Sounds painful. Does it have pictures?"
"Only on the cover."
"Who wrote it?"
"Ah, Hemingway."
"You've read him?"
"You've never read Hemingway?"
"No, but I saw him in Midnight in Paris and he was pretty darn good."
"That was an actor playing Hemingway."
"Are you sure?"
"Yes. Hemingway's dead."
"Was it because he lost his arms?"
"Question. Do you think Hemingway was so serious in the movie because he wanted to live up to his first name?"
