Too Hoarse To Horse Around

Posted on Mon, Nov 7, 2011 at 12:03 PM

Obviously at no fault of our own, but is it not suspect that by self proclaiming in a tavern that you would like to be arrested by an officer on a passing horse somehow warrants enough intrigue for an automatic unseemly dismissal from one of our more reputed downtown watering holes? In need of serious awakening is our ability to dismiss the jests of our busy patrons in a way that makes truer tides of conversation left lacking in the departments of our common courtesy. Upon entering this normally well kept establishment, it caught our eye seeing a passing patrol officer on an equestrian of fine nature which did cause our conversation quite an unexpected stir due to our mild previous festivities. Merrily seated and quickly acclimating to our expectations of thirst and temperature we were gravely disappointed by the stark disapproval of our topical discussion by our ill attentive server as demonstrated by our rapid expulsion from our strategic, palliative spirits endeavour. If not for other less salted Arachis laid grounds for which we found our means, the atmosphere would have been set to that drier than the prohibition era. It seems only in downtown Halifax you can bring a horse to a conversation, but you cannot get it a drink. —Kennedy and Monroe
