Overheard at a local tavern:
1st Guy: What time’s the AA Meeting?
2nd Guy: Three.
1st Guy: (glances at wall clock) We better get goin’. Sal’s bringing the doughnuts.
2nd Guy: The chocolate cream ones?
1st Guy: Yeah.
2nd Guy: (slams down his drink) Don’t wanna miss them!
As a friend of mine once said, “Years from now, when we remember this, we’ll smile nervously, mumble something irrelevant, and change the subject.” (No, I am not a member of Alcoholics Anonymous. Too many people at the meetings know me.)
