You see after an anniversary night out, Bob got drunk  leaving Sue to drive Michelle home. Niether Sue or Michelle had planned this it just happened to happen that way.

See Father John on table one, in for his daily black coffee. He’s always there with a quote and a prayer or a bless you my son. But what nobody else knows is, John lost his faith a decade ago, he just carries on because it’s all that he knows. He of course feels guilty for the false blessings he hands out , but he can’t help it , it just happened to happen that way.

See over there by the door on table four, crazy old Jane her language profane. What nobody remembers now is . In Janes youth , she was an actress with a developing career in Holywood , a star in the making . Unfortunatley her career was cut short , thanks to an over familiar local govener and an unplanned pregnancy , of course in her day that sort of thing was frowned upon , and her silence was duly bought, she wasn’t proud of it. It just happened to happen that way.

See Jack and Reese on table 3, burley construction workers , always there with a joke or a prank at each others expense.What Jack does’nt know is Reese is in love with him.
