Gratitude List 22/04/2019
A Monty Python parody….
REG: …….. and what has recovery ever given us in return?!
XERXES: Better relationships?
XERXES: Better relationships.
REG: Oh. Yeah, yeah. It has given us that. Uh, that’s true. Yeah.
COMMANDO #3: And peace of mind.
LORETTA: Oh, yeah, peace of mind, Reg. Remember what our washing machine head used to be like?
REG: Yeah. All right. I’ll grant you the better relationships and peace of mind are two things that recovery has done.
MATTHIAS: And a better bank balance.
REG: Well, yeah. Obviously a better bank balance. I mean, a better bank balance goes without saying, doesn’t it? But apart from better relationships, peace of mind, and a better bank balance–
COMMANDOS: Huh? Heh? Huh…
COMMANDO #2: Wisdom.
REG: Yeah, yeah. All right. Fair enough.
COMMANDO #1: And hope.
COMMANDOS: Oh, yes. Yeah…
FRANCIS: Yeah. Yeah, that’s something we’d really miss, Reg, if recovery left. Huh.
LORETTA: And it’s safe to be left alone with our thoughts and sanity now, Reg.
FRANCIS: Yeah, it certainly knows what’s better for us. Let’s face it. It’s the only one that could in a place like this.
COMMANDOS: Hehh, heh. Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh.
REG: All right, but apart from the better relationships, peace of mind, a better bank balance, acceptance, courage, wisdom, hope, unity, sanity, what has recovery ever done for us?
XERXES: Brought happiness.
REG: Oh. Happiness? Shut up!
