That Couple

scotchWithout realizing it, we were that couple, holed up on a couch at a bar with our hands all over eachother, kissing on the subway platform, hands interlocked on the street. So I put my scotch down and smiled at the guy across from us. “I’m sorry, we didn’t realize we were that couple.” He looked bewildered. We laughed a little. “The thing is, we ordered a single malt, and the bartender has a heavy pour.” He nodded. “What I mean is, we didn’t mean to be that couple. You know.” He smiled politely and strained his head to look for his grumpy-looking girlfriend to come back. We sighed and went back to being that couple. We didn’t mean to be, but so what.
