And This is Why I Drink
RIC: Do you want me to prep anything for the spaghetti?
RIC: It’s Sunday.
ME: Yes, it is.
RIC: Sunday is a special day.
ME: It’s the Lords’s day; a day to commune with God (whomever your god may be), a day to remember the good things in life; a day of rest; a day to spend with loved ones.
RIC: I am glad that you feel that way because I invited some friends over for dinner.
ME: Great! I assume you are making something special for them.
RIC: [with a quizzical look] It’s Sunday.
RIC:: You’re making spaghetti.
ME: But you invited people over. Don’t you want something special?
RIC: A special meal for a special day.
ME: Of course.
RIC: Spaghetti is special.
ME: For guests?
RIC: For everyone.
ME: Open the wine.
