…it becomes a common topic of text conversations with friends. (i.e. “Sorry, you fell off the wagon and I left you behind because you’d already had like 4 fevers and some snakebites so I figured I’d just cut my losses”)
…you start to think things like “If you fell off the wagon I’d stop and spend 2 days looking for you” counts as saying “I love you”
…you start making ridiculous puns like “So Jane says drinking the bad water makes you sick?” “Well, I wouldn’t cholera liar!”
Man, I’m really looking forward to picking up some more shifts at work.
