Actual phone call with a friend on Friday Morning:
Me: Is it too early to drink?
Him: Hmmm, 9:30 am. Maybe a Sombrero, you know, something with Kalhua in it to have that coffee thing. On second thought I am sorry, I would say that you would have to acknowledge that you have a problem if you did.
Me: Yeh, I was afraid of that. And if YOU say it is too early to drink then I know it is.
Him: I suppose. So what is wrong that you need a drink at 9:30 in the morning?
Me: Nothing, just a trying work week.
Conversation continues and I suppose I had just a bit more of an edge than usual.
Him: You are a bit belligerent today.
Me: Oh no, really?
Him: Yes, but attractively billigerent.
And that, my friends, is true friendship! (thanks Dave)
