Resolution Re-Run


New years by the score
have left me in doubt
as what more to leave out.
I gave up hard spirits,
tobacco and speeding,
soaped out my mouth
and even stopped fibbing.
I once gave up slouching
and dating bad men,
ran from intolerance
to pose on the fence.
I’m not pure lily white
but surely modest and mild.
I’ve come full circle
which is rather odd
so this year I resolve
to resume smokes and gin,
to step up my pace,
and regain ten pounds
while practicing road rage
and lewd finger waves.


I wish you a Great 2008!

This is a re-run. When I get these resolutions exactly right, I'll write a new list...

Thanks for the comment on my blog!

I was just thinking about all those silly resolutions and how I'd like to phrase it: "I would like to weigh less at the end of the year than I do now." No specific amount. Takes the pressure off, yes?

A very whimsical look at the new year.

Happy New year lady!
This piece is on the money.
Now and then I wonder where I'd be if I'd continued all my bad habits.

Very funny!

By the way, when you posted a comment on my blog you put a typo in your URL, so I ended up clicking through to this site:

I thought I was losing my mind until I saw the typo.

This made me laugh; thank you! I like the road rage resolution the best. Thanks for your humor.

Happy New Year to you too. I like the idea of bad resolutions to greet the New Year. They might have a better chance of being achieved than good ones.
