You beat me to The Hogfather reference!

The Big Sleep
My mother had a stroke and couldn’t live by herself any more. While she was hospitalized and unconscious, my sister and I went through her things, kept what we thought she wanted, split some things we wanted, and sold the rest through a company that does estate sales. Took less than a week, out of necessity, since we both lived out of state and had to get back to work. Put her house on the market, got a great price, and I moved her out to assisted living near me.
Still kind of awkward. “That, Scratch?”
Shouldn’t that be “switch” instead of “scratch”?
Oh many a peer of England brews
Livelier liquor than the Muse,
And malt does more than Milton can
To justify God’s ways to man.
Ale, man, ale’s the stuff to drink
For fellows whom it hurts to think: . .
Almost all the current COVID deaths are unvaccinated people.
Unlike ponds or the ocean.
