But do you recall
My dad used to say this thing upon parting—to friends, family, neighbors, strangers, children—what I thought growing up was “Keep’s over!” but what in reality was “Keep sober!” It doesn’t make much sense any way you slice it but he has never cared much for making sense. He just likes talking. Just like I like typing!
So happy holidays, etc., to you and your favorite people and especially all the dogs out there. They know who they are. Stay cool, or warm, or whatever your preference (my parents like it EXTRA HOT so I will be kicking back in shorts and a tube top in 30-degree weather). Most of all, be safe, be well, keep laughing, and keep sober (but also drink if you need to, and you’ll probably need to).
