A friend emailed, said he’s Scotch

Scotch is a form of whiskey. The people are Scots.

I replied, “How that got into your ancestry must be an interesting story. Does this mean you’re immune to hangovers? Do you have to pay alcohol import duties on yourself when you travel? Are you flammable?”

He hasn’t responded yet. Maybe someone poured him back into the bottle and he can’t get out.

Don’t be stuck in the bottle. Grammar matters.

A bit from a story in progress

One of the problems with adults is they stop believing in real things. They only believe in made-up things, like stock markets, marketing plans, reality TV and internet memes. See, adults think they know what reality is, while they’re only squinting at the shadows moving on the cave wall.
