Crisp Toasts: Wonderful Words That Add Wit and Class to Every Time You Raise Your Glass|
William R. Evans III and Andrew Frothingham
From The Publisher:
This contemporary collection from The New Yorker 's Frothingham and Evans will prove useful for any collection. Crisp Toasts lists at least three toasts for more than 100 alphabetically arranged topics, from absent friends to work. Ranging from timely to traditional, most of the toasts are short one-liners, ideal for weddings, christenings, reunions, and retirement dinners.
Friends & Friendship: To our best friends, who know the worst about us but refuse to believe it.
Generosity: Life 'em high and drain 'em dry to the guy who says, "My turn to buy!"
Golf: To golf, the most frustrating and masochistic sport in the world, which may be why golf spelled backward in flog.
Happiness: May we be happy and our enemies know it.
Gambling: Life consists not in holding good cards, but playing those you hold well.
Politics & Politicians: To Washington, our country's capital, where the roads, and everything else, go around in circles.
