I’m remembering my father. I think of him often, daily it seems, but I don’t often remember him, in the way one does when something has gone. It has been twenty-two years, but on this day, each year, I remember him. The other days, the thousands that have passed since, I think of him. He is present, and I am content.

The libation: Absinthe. Mistakes were made.

We’re not serving you absinthe. We’re not serving anybody absinthe. We can’t even look at absinthe. We can’t even look at the color green. We’re going to serve ourselves a bacon, egg, and cheese, and go back to bed for a couple days.
