An honest mistake

"I've def been thinking of you though Colleen -- I told my boss he needed to put down the bottle the other day."

--email from a friend

At first blush I was a tad offended-- I thought my friend was saying that his boss' alcohol problem reminded him of me! But I then realized he was referring to the fact that "put down the bottle" is a phrase I use frequently when someone (sober or not) says or does something goofy.

Either way, I suppose, it's nice to be remembered for something!
