Quote #4

He drank an Anis at the bar and looked at the people. (108)

This is an interesting moment, because it’s the first time we see the couple apart in the story. The narrator makes a choice to follow the man into the bar, rather than wait at the table with Jig. Do you think Jig would have ordered an Anis del Toro on the sly, too?
