Seven questions with Alvin Stone…
Name: Alvin Stone
What was your first tattoo?
Alvin: The band on my bicep. It reminded me I’m strong.
We can all tell you’re strong by looking at you. What would you say is your biggest strength?
A: Knowing when people need to talk. It’s a skill you pick up being behind the bar.
Do you have any weaknesses?
A: (Laughs) Absolutely. My biggest one is my friend’s kid, David. He’s an awesome little dude.
You said he’s your biggest one. Do you have more?
A: Definitely. A curvy woman will always bring me to my knees. Especially if she has a smart mouth and a killer smile.
Do you know any like that?
Sounds like there’s more to that one, but we’ll ask a different question. What do you avoid more than anything in the world?
A: A second date.
Really? Why is that?
A: Is that question seven? (Smirks)
Uh, no. It’s a continuation of question six.
A: Trying to sneak an extra one in. I’ll allow it. Women get attached. I’m not built for forever. Not with a woman. I love kids, but having one means having his mother around, and I know better than to think I could deal with that forever.
If the right woman came along, would you want a family?
A: (Nods) Yeah. I’ve always wanted a family, but it’s not in the cards for me. It sucks, but what can you do.
There’s someone out there for you. You’ll find her.
A: (Smiles) Maybe. She’s gotta be pretty damn special to put up with me, though.
