She was no longer the center of attention. What should she do?
Stop looking at me! "

"Now why would I want to do that, you’re drop dead gorgeous. "

"Oh, stop it", she giggled, uncertain if he really meant it.

He took a sip of his beer and scooted over to the chair that was right next to hers.

Politely he asked "what she was drinking?"

She giggled again and said "a Shirley Temple."

The surprise on his face made her giggle even more.

He motioned to the bartender and ordered her another one.

She was beginning to warm up to his undivided attention, then suddenly a tall man wearing a cowboy hat came up and slapped him on the back.

She frowned, she was losing him, because obviously these two hadn’t seen each other in a while.

The man in the cowboy hat sat down and now they were in an intense debate on the last time they had seen one another.

She was no longer the center of attention.

She pondered how she was going to get back his attention.

Then she got up and walked past them and into the Women’s Restroom. In a few minutes she came out of the restroom and started to walk past them, but she abruptly stopped and said, "oh you have something on your chin" and grabbed a wet nap from her purse and gently wiped his face, all the while smiling. When finished, she said, "there that's better" and walked back to her seat.

Both men had stunned looks on their faces.

That was twenty years ago, what’s surprising is she married the guy in the cowboy hat and he gives her his undivided attention everyday.
