I just want to record something else which happened yesterday which had me laughing my head off. We were discussing ways to break bad habits, so I brought up how I'm still off the booze. I told them about the technique I mention in the footnote here: I imagine captain Picard, in his deepest, sternest voice, ordering me not to drink. After all, who could resist a direct order from the captain of the Enterprise? David, the fellow running the session - and obviously being familiar with Star Trek - immediately suggested the line ''Make it Sober!'' Why that had never occurred to me before I do not know, but I was suddenly in fits of laughter. I was howling my head off. It was a great line, one which demanded recording here, and one which I'm definitely going to have to use in the future.
''Make it Sober!''
