I am not pleased with you for dying when you did, Betty; and I know that you were not pleased with me when off you went; HOWEVER: I have a magnet on my refrigerator that you gave me, and it says “Forever Friends” , so I intend to hold you to that promise.
Happy birthday to you in Heaven, Betty. And as to whatever you didn’t like about how my life went on when yours didn’t: Get over it.
I damn well would have been there if you would have told me, and you know it!
Now. Shall I pour the coffee, or is it your turn?
