Buy it... before I was given a cue tonight!
It was so strange what happened. All the house cues have been taken behind the bar and they need to be sanitized, fair enough. So you can ask for one and they just give you one and hope for the best. Usually I would grab about 5 from the rack and find the straightest, no such luxury in this current climate.
I was meeting a guy who used to work at the club, who once did a few hours for me, sorta work experience, taking minutes in a meeting, but I'd promised to pay him £50. It was about a week before my life got switched turned upside down and I bailed to Spain and I never paid him. I got his number yesterday and said I was back and I had his nifty, and he was really chuffed and we agreed to meet today and have a few games of pool.
Part of my journey here in London this time has been a bit of a path of redemption, looking up people I've let down and making amends. Keeping my word.
I was handed a really nice cue from behind the bar with a joint just above the butt, the classic three-quarter joint. This was odd for a start, as all the house cues are one piece. I took a few shots with it, loved the weight, the tip, really nice bit of kit. Where did this cue come from?
The maintenance guy who is part of the furniture, and I always speak to when I'm there, wandered over and I said to him, 'look I know that you can buy house cues, can I buy this one?' He took a look at it and said 'give me a minute,' and went to speak to the manager. When he returned he said 'Dan, you can have this cue. I'll grab you a case.'
Keep your word, do good things, the universe pays you back.
