On Friday, my friends and I had an uproarious laugh that one of the guys on our bowling team had taken “the under” on me making it to Sunday for my 26 years clean and sober.
I add “clean” due to its increasing importance in the minor squabble over whether or not doing drugs amounts to a relapse or not. Most sane people can laugh that one off, but I didn’t add that for them. There are, sadly, some very sick people out there who won’t feel the full freedom of recovery because they’re too afraid to fully quit.
In any event, “the over” won the bet.
It’s a party, baby.
