Gravy!.....

.... as I wander down this Path of Breathing, I am often flummoxed by the various vaugeries, situations, and opportunities of Life..... and when I find myself faced with such mindboggling things, I often quote Roscoe Brown from Lonesome Dove - the scene where he's just been told Ellie has skipped town whislt knocked-up...... here's an example....

The Missus: What's for breakfast?
Me: ..... would you like eggs?....
The Missus: We're out of eggs, I just checked.
Me: .... what??!!... out of EGGS!?.... that's impossible.... what?? "On a whiskey boat?!"....

... yeah, I know..... but the truth is often much, much more strange than fiction......

... however, Christmastime provides my vocabulary with a stay from the mundanity of the rest of the year.... behold "The Holiday Quote" via A Christmas Carol..... this is the immortal line that Scrooge says to The Ghost of Marley when he can't believe his eyes......

"You may be an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of underdone potato. There's more of gravy than of grave about you, whatever you are!"


.... good god, I love that line...... absolutely marvelous, isn't it?..... so, in keeping with The Season, the next time you are presented with a situation of incredulity, I suggest you quote ole Scrooge...

.... c'mon, admit it..... isn't it the thought of calling someone a 'fragment of underdone potato' or an 'undigested bit of beef' toe-curlingly appealing?.....

... or, for that matter, you could just point at them and yell "GRAVY!!".....

... just trying to make sure y'all have a festive holiday season, folks.......

... you're welcome....
