This might be my last message of this year. Did any of your teachers in school pull the famous New Year joke on you? They would give us an assignment before Christmas/New Year break and say “This will be your last homework assignment for the year.” Some students would fall for it and start cheering. Yet others would see the sadistic smirk on the teacher’s face and realize that the new year, which was right around the corner, would bring brand new homework assignments.
Do any of you make resolutions on New Year’s Eve? I resolved a long time ago to not make anymore resolutions. I don’t have the kind of commitment it takes to stick to something so abstractly set in stone. Hey, I don’t want to wind up lying to myself, right?
I will stay up till midnight, though. It was always an adventure to try to stay up till midnight when I was a kid. Then it became a challenge to stay up all night. It doesn’t have the same magic, cuz it wears a person out. I took caffeine pills once to stay up all night with a friend. I shall never do that again. That was a resolution I could keep.
Do any of you have plans for New Year’s Eve?
I wish you all an Extreeemely Happy New Year!
Pssst..Don’t forget to date your checks 2006 when the time comes.
