The Bathroom Bar

I dreamt that chassy and I went to a bar, and in the huge men's room of the bar there were bars and bartenders and urinals all interspersed. There were shelves above every urinal where you could set your drink.

Beer was only $1, but it was served in 4 oz. glasses. There was a lot of noise--drinking and pissing, conversations and flushing--so I had to raise my voice to be heard.

"I can't believe they're serving beer in a bathroom! That's one of the worst ideas I've ever seen!"

"It's not so bad," Chassy replied, "but when you think about it, that's like 6 pounds for a pint."

I didn't argue with the math--it would be $4, or around 2 British pounds, for a pint. Unless, in my dream, the British pound was seriously devalued. Or maybe it was just a story problem for another part of my dream, where I was in a giant math class and didn't know anyone except for stoprockroll, who was a few rows ahead of me.
