The fellow sat down at the Bar, but didn't order.

The bartender, an unusually friendly guy, asked him ifhe could fix him a drink, on the house.

The English Shook his head, "Tried liquor once", he said, "Didn't like it";

The bartender then offered the Englishman a Cigarette.

"No, thank you" he said, "Tried Tobacco once", didn't like it.

Still trying to be friendly, the bartender asked the Englishman, if he would like to join a couple of friends seated at the Bar in a few hands of Poker.

The Englishman shook his head, "Tried Gambling once", didn't like it.  I wouldn't be.

Sitting in this place at all, but I promised my son, I would meet him here.
