It's Friday!!

It was the middle of winter and the snow was beginning to drift outside.
Joe and Sarah were not only newlyweds, but also new in recovery. They were both alcoholics. They had attended AA meetings together and separately; small discussion meetings, prayer & meditation meetings and large speaker meetings.

This morning, they were going to a small meditation meeting only a few blocks away. The temperature was barely above freezing. Joe wanted to walk but Sarah thought it was too cold and wanted to take the car. They argued. The arguments turned nasty and Joe pushed Sarah. She fell and hit her head on the coffee table. Sarah lay motionless; Joe called 911.

Paramedics arrived and pronouned Sarah dead. The police were on the scene and arrested Joe. They handcuffed him and put him in the squad car.

Although Joe maintained that it was an accident, he was charged with ...

1st degree pre-meditation murder.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that most of you will realize I am a very very sick person after that feeble attempt at a joke

that I awoke sober again this morning - for 35 straight consecutive months

for mini-4th steps -- my resentment prevention

for those who have shown me the right path, usually without ever knowing it

that we have escaped the massive heat wave that many of you are experiencing

To be able to look back upon one's past life with satisfaction is to live twice.

Oh, I get it. It's pre-meditation, because they would have gone to a meditation meeting if they hadn't argued! hahaha

That being said, you're sick, man. Sick.
