A Sad Story

This morning a waitress at a local diner told
me that her purse was stolen over the week-end.
This happened at a cocktail lounge adjacent to
a restaurant on Saturday night.

She was with her boyfriend, and left her purse
at the booth while she went to the ladies' room.
The boyfriend, of course, agreed to keep his
eye on the purse.

Instead, he ignored the purse and watched the lounge's
TV screen instead.   (There were probably several).  She
described him as a "sports nut."   While his eyes were
on the all-powerful TV, someone snatched her purse.

I wonder if she and her boyfriend even shared ten minutes'
worth of conversation.
