Bar Exam

You know who they are and the types of problems that they bring with them to the bar. They’re just trying to resolve the mysteries of life, love and the nature of the human condition by talking with friends or strangers. Sometimes the best person to talk to is the individual who you randomly sit next to in a bar, they don’t know you so they become the purest confidant because there are no pre-determined ideas of how a situation should be resolved, handled or dealt with.

You’ll discover what makes love last, how to tap into the world of abundance and how to resolve marital conflicts. Observe the trials and tribulations of a resident chauvinist and his struggles to understand the fairer sex. Reflect on the thoughts of the bar’s resident philosopher and participate in the development of a budding romance. Written with humor, sensitivity and insight, readers will feel as if they want to join in each conversation and share their own insights. At the Benbow, there’s always someone willing to listen!


“Lenny, you have a problem that James Earl Jones captured in a few words. He said, ‘one of the hardest things in life is having words in your heart you can’t utter.’ My dear friend, your heart has been frozen for many years and your words are trapped inside. You need an opportunity to let your heart thaw.”

“Melissa is a tall, slender redhead, with hair that drifts down her back like a bolt of new Chinese silk, ending in the small curve of her back. It swishes when she walks and has the most delightful scent. When people talk with her, they frequently violate her comfort zone just to get close enough to smell her hair without being noticed. I know I do.”

“I have one question for you three that I need answered.”

“What’s that, Lenny?” responded William, finally turning his eyes to me.

“What happens between lust and lost?” I posed.

“Love,” answered Melissa without hesitation.

“But, that’s the problem. “How do you make love last?” I asked.
