Steph N. : Hi, this is Steph, N. and I have a question for Gwen Signorelli (novel is Pissing in the Wind). Gwen, it’s obvious you’ve been married before, and tending bar in Ocho Rios, you’ve probably been around a bit. How long did it take you to realize that Joe was the one?
GWEN: Hello Steph, Just to be accurate, I didn’t tend bar, I own the bar. There’s a difference, believe me. I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you’re not the knuckle dragger that you sound like. A bit of advice: Never ever ever tell a woman she’s been around a bit. It doesn’t go over well.
STEPH: Ms. Signorelli, I do apologize. I meant no disrespect. I was using short-hand.
GWEN: And look at all the time we saved with that short-hand… To your question. Everyone’s different I suppose, but you do get to the point that you can size people up quickly in a bar. Joe came in. He was clearly an out-worlder…not from Jamaica, and that’s not unusual. But he was funny and sad and bright all at the same time. I got that right off the bat. When he ordered a Jamaican Boiler Maker (yuck to the concept) it was funny. But when I asked him if he was going to be sick…..he answered, “I don’t know.” Truth, and funny, and sad. Those are things that’ll take you pretty far with a woman.
