    can I have your virtual reality headset when you’re done with it? I’ve seen enough of real reality.

    Dare I say “back to form!”?

    And the punctuation is perfect, check it out.

    I would tell you how much I missed your holiday radio show this year but I could never do the job adequately. Hope to hear you back on the “airwaves” soon.

    Happy New Year, and go ahead, tweet that new year check-writing joke.

    I would argue that the phrase “back to form” hinges on too much subjectivity, or at least contextually speaking.

    A few months after my mother’s attempted suicide, I asked my father how she was doing. He replied with the gist that she was “back to form.”

    I can’t remember if I merely thought, or if I expressed it audibly, but “wasn’t that what got her into trouble in the first place?”

    SD, I was referring to his form before “The Troubles.”
