I had given up inquiring to Jerry quite a while ago about the status of his pool table, whether it had arrived yet or not. After weeks waiting, he told me that the store had finally received some in. Telling them to deliver it Thursday morning, of course it didn't arrive until well into that afternoon.
Friday night, after a phone call and brief discussion about the table, the decision was made - virtually independent of Jerry's input - that it might be fun to get some friends together and go over just to test it out for him. And so we were, gathered in the dimly lit downstairs area, drinks, music, friends, hitting coloured balls around the shining new green tabletop.
