Okay. Now that we’ve eaten our fill of appetizers, sushi, steaks, meatballs, and sparkling wine, toasted the New Year, let’s get real. Let’s talk about our “New Year’s Resolutions” and what they really turn out to be.
Resolution: I’m going to exercise more.
Reality: Let’s park 20 cars further than our usual spot and count that as walking 10 minutes a day.
Resolution: I’m going to watch less junk on TV and start watching educational shows.
Reality: I’ll squeeze in a Cosmos between the Walking Dead and Fargo.
Resolution: I’m going to be nicer to people I don’t really like.
Reality: I’m going to avoid like the plague the people I don’t like.
Resolution: I’m going to start putting away money in my savings account.
Reality: Two dollars a week isn’t saving much of anything…
Resolution: I’m going to expand and enhance and update my wardrobe.
Reality: I think I’ll add a pair of khakis with an elastic waist to my wardrobe.
Resolution: I’m going to listen to more music this coming year. Music is the soul of creation.
Reality: How about rock…no, classical…no, country…no, smooth jazz…no, big band…OH I CAN’T DECIDE!!
Resolution: I’m going to eat healthier this year.
Reality: Okay, only one scoop of guacamole on my chicken/bacon/cheese taco salad.
So much for my resolutions for 2016.
How about yours??
