Short story time:

When my niece (B) was a baby, our great-grandfather was alive, in his 90s, and my sibs were both at east of Mississippi military bases. So we’d all take 1-3 week shifts of respite & assistance care for him.

We’d overlap on purpose.

One trip was just awful, because B brought a virus with her, and I caught it on the last two days (Gramps did not!).

When my sister took me to catch the train back to Denver, we blew 2 tires on the way to Chicago. (Fucking potholes.)

Missed a departure.
So we’re in Chicago, near Union Station, overnight, at a last-minute 5 star hotel we got for an online steal (back when that possible) and the car is busy being fixed, so they can go back to Grampa, then home.
We need food, and to walk, so Sis and I take Baby B looking for food, and everything’s closed. Except this dive bar in a basement.

Looks like it’s been a speakeasy since the Chicago Fire, but they reluctantly agree they serve food and will accept our baby girl.
Food was GREAT. Baby B was a DELIGHT. She flirted with the bartender & the old regulars; she didn’t make a mess, she was her sweet self.

I pay the bill.
The bartender tells me that he doesn’t like kids in the bar, but my baby is always welcome & bring her back.

That’s my B.
