“She has impossibly blue eyes, not the color of a sunny sky but of thick, cracked ice. That impossibly blue dress flounced around my legs all night on the dance floor, then she left me standing on the stoop feeling impossibly blue when she didn’t invite me in. Oh, I’m blue, blue, blue.” Scotty played and sang.
Mac said, “Don’t believe I’ve ever heard those words or anyone howl the word blue.”
“The way I feel it seemed to fit.”
“Our Katie’s eyes are green; maybe you’re focusing on the wrong gal.”
“You giving your permission?”

Note: Scotty is a new bartender at the No Thanks. He has hesitated asking Katie out for fear her father and grandfather (Mac) wouldn’t approve.
