The Spy

The only clandestine story I even know concerns my father, he was the champ of clandestine stories you heard years later. His known nickname was Stevie G., which rightfully described his ever-present swagger. But on several occasions, I overheard an addition to the title; Champagne Steve G., which described more of his legend then his every day demeanor. It described his penchant for anonymously buying dinners for young couples in obvious love, or taking a couple homeless guys out to a fancy restaurant for a meal and free booze or as the nickname suggests, buying bottles of champagne for an entire restaurant and closing the doors for the night swaying to songs of the night.

So this Bond character is in a small way dedicated to my father and all the stories I found out through others who couldn’t help but give up the secret life of Stevie G.
