They've given me some pre-anthesia something or other.
"Happy Thanksgiving" I tell Barb, as they roll me away.
To anyone but Barb it might seem like the drugs had taken effect.
But I'm perfectly coherent. I'm just joking about a time when I wasn't coherent.
A few years ago in February I dropped Barb off at the airport. And I wished her a Happy Thanksgiving. I have no idea where that came from. In retrospect I think there's something about dropping people off at the airport and the curb-side goodbye hug that makes you want to wish them something. So, in the middle of February "Happy Thanksgiving" popped out.
I think this is remarkably clever.
