Two men play cards, as a third watches and a waiter brings drinks. The third man pours drinks as the waiter laughs.




Plot

Three men sit around a table at a terrace outside a bistro. Two of them are playing cards, while the third calls the waiter by knocking at the table. The waiter arrives, receives the order, and is swiftly back, carrying a tray with a bottle of wine and three glasses. While the third man fills the glasses with wine, the waiter follows the card game with great interest, applauding and laughing loudly. The three men raise their glasses and toast. The two card players put more money on the table and continue their game. Written by Maths Jesperson {maths.jesperson1@comhem.se}
