Yet another on the List Of Statements Made Mainly In Alaska. I just made it, and I was not wisecracking. I brought my wife home the fruit popsicles she enjoys, but there was no room in our hosts’ freezer, so I stuck both boxes in the snow piled atop the grill on the back porch. They’re still out there.
In a normal place, the response might have been: “Honey, have you been drinking?”
In Alaska: “Great, dear, will you please bring me one?”
