i said, hey dougalug, we're trying to have a joint october birthday party for ma, keaton and the nieces either next week or halloween sunday.
doug said, unfortunately bobalooey, i won't be around next sunday. i will be available on the the 31st though, but of course will be in costume, so there's a pretty good chance no one will realize that i'm even there.
i said, huh ... well that sure is a catch-22. why bother comin' if you don't get any credit?
he said, yeah, my thoughts exactly.
