Why do they play 'The Girl From Ipanema' in every resort? Is it the quintessential exotic location ballad? What do you think is the most evocative holiday song? This one was playing as we again came head-to-head in the great battle for billiards mastership. V—— has asked me to not tell anyone that I beat him four to one. Don't say anything. And I think I was unlucky on the last game because I ended up with a blister from the sticky cue against my sticky hands in the stickyness of the bar. But I honestly think that he is too invested in winning, rather than my approach which was described as a 'depraved indifference to slaughtering my opponent', or as I like to call it, partly luck and partly maths.
Who wore it better?
