There seems to be more interest in having Robin back to her usual potty-mouth self than in extending the pool. In any case, regarding Fight Scene 15 (scroll down), I contend that anyone else would have written, I saw myself sitting there, a slender, tender blonde girl in front of a frosty Collins, sipping sporadically but mostly nibbling on the orange slice, chewing on the cherry. The cherry. Not: I saw myself sitting there, a slender, tender blonde girl nibbling . . . on my cherry. Furthermore, according to the International Bartenders Association, a cherry isn't even part of the recipe for a Collins. Are you telling me a bartender in Houma, LA, in a place classy enough to have pool tables and foosball, would deviate from official IBA ingredients? No, that cherry wasn't put in by the bartender; it was put in by the author.
Moving on, note that the author didn't write Everyone else was drinking a beer, but rather, Everyone else was holding on to their brown longnecks. A subtle but noticeable difference.
Finally, it wasn't enough to say, I saw the switchblade, or He had his cue. The author had to add "in his hand" to each phrase (as if one would hold a pool cue or switchblade anywhere but his hand), making sure we didn't miss her fascination with whacking the weenie. In fact, while I don't have time to check the Urban Dictionary, I feel certain that along with "polishing the bishop" and "flogging the dolphin," you'll find among the idioms for masturbation, "stroking the switchblade," "glossing the longneck," and "chafing the cuestick."
