Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.

Notes
I recently came up with a dialectal variation in the reflex of Lt. servio. There's the form I already knew about, which analogizes with sortior, giving the infinitive servre [ˈsɛʁ.vʁə]. Then, there's the one I invented in the last few days, based on aperio, which gives sevrî [səˈvʁiː]. Interestingly, the conditional/future forms of these variants would be pronounced the same in the Moûtiers accent I've used for my IPA transcriptions; servrô and severô are both pronounced [sɛˈvʁɔː].

New/rethought words
asivre v - to seat; (reflexive) to sit
nan nmc - stream (< Celtic; cf. Breton nant "thalweg", Gaulish nanto- "valley")
nonn̄uixen adj - harmless; quiet (< nuixen "harmful; loud" < nuirï "to harm; to make noise")
servre/sevrî v - to serve; to be necessary
