The narrator begins by telling the other guy about his first experience in the theater. He tells the story of how he cleaned up the theater and how he used to get drunk and play billiards. The narrator says that he was taught to play billiards by the owner, who used to give him drinks. He says that the owner even had a "tongue piercing" , which is a fancy way of saying that he had a crush on him. The other guy asks if he's going to get one on his tongue the next day, and the narrator says he'll get one soon. The two of them go off to get a drink, and then the narrator asks if they're okay, and they both admit that they've had too much to drink. Then the narrator tells the guy to go home with his father, who's a good looking guy. He asks if there's any billiard table in the house, and he says yes, and that he bought it because he wants to build a billiards table in his house later on. Then he asks if the owner needs a piercing, and she says no, because he just did a "flow" . The next time the narrator plays billiards, he says, he won't think of the owner. He'll just think of him.
