Well, thank you for giving my wife some more SUGGESTIONS, Dallas.
Actually, I'll suggest she do that at the Sunday meeting she goes to with me. She'll have to go to my other meetings, too. But they're closed. She'll have to be an under-cover alcoholic for that gig.
Coffee is a good idea. I do that sometimes out of my $20 left-over dollars - sugar, stir-sticks, sweet & low, creamer, Bailey's ...
... no wait ... can't buy Bailey's on Sunday here and I don't plan a day ahead.
I'm the "coffee chair" for the Sunday meeting. I missed breakfast with my sister this weeked because I have to go an hour early to make the coffee. I have the key.
The community center is being remodelled and all the groups had to put their stuff in boxes while the cabinets are torn out. Wasn't room for the coffee pot in a box so they told me to take it home with me. So I'm driving around with a 42 cup coffee pot in my truck (big group) and had to miss breakfast so I could keep a hundred drunks awake for a meeting.
'Sok by me ... I drink more than my share of the coffee. And I pick up some stuff on my own for the bar when we run out ahead of the scheduled re-supply run.
I feel safe with the coffee pot in my trunk. God ain't gonna let me die. He loves Him some coffee drinkin' drunks.
I'm glad AA does for itself - we are AA. We do for ourselves what gov't shouldn't do for us. We let a Higher Power then them do what we can't.
Liberal Democrats made it to my resentments list. Then I found out it was my fault. (I'm sure I just volunteered for a lot of liberal drunks to pray for me.)
And I appreciate it. I drank liberally myself.
PS: Doggonit, Dallas. Now I have a new fear. Gov't healthcare - if they call alcoholism a medical problem wothy of paying for treatment like insurance companies do, they might pay the dues and regulate our group conscience. We're too big to fail! A cash-for-the-crashed program! Aw, DUDE! I gotta pray this through now. Thanks.
