There has been this character going around the local AA meetings claiming to be an "addictionologist." I chuckled when I overheard two AA members talking about it today. Sadly, there is no easy cure for addiction. It is a complete change of lifestyle. At least, that is the only thing I have found that works and that's what AA does -- it reprograms you.
Wanda and I were talking about it today after our meeting.
"Some people have all the gall," she said after pulling on her cigarette.
"Sadly, people will believe them," I replied, worried somebody would be duped into buying whatever they were peddling.
"He'll get run out of town soon," Wanda replied to my worries.
This morning we took Maggie to the Veterinarian for her annual checkup. It is not too often Maggie goes for a road trip and she was blissfully unaware of where we were going as I drove us to the edge of town. She did good, though, and just shook she was so frightened. Maggie has settled comfortably back into her usual routines and is no worse for wear.
