Gabriel Byrne at Giorgione

Reconstructed Version of Last Night's Events Based (Loosely) Upon the Words of the Friend With Whom I Had Dinner at Giorgione:
"Gabriel Byrne at the bar? Where?"
"What? Gabriel Byrne is not sexy. Ew."
"All right, you can quit referring to Gabriel Byrne as your 'boyfriend' now."
"Hey, look, he's chatting up a much younger woman!"
"Oh, stop. That does not 'bode well for you.'"
"So he 'eye contacted' you. So what. Sooooo fucking what. Drink your port."
"No I don't want to go play with the go-go boys at Slide."
"Because I'm neither male nor gay."
"No, it's not 'irrelevant.'"
