It is a rare person who can start a new year and not think of making some change or resolution.
I tried to not do this.
Then I got on the scales.
I didn’t like the number and to avoid making the resolution that is almost assuredly to fail, i.e. loose ‘x’ pounds, where ‘x’ is an imaginary number, I just decided to eat more healthy and responsibly. Since both those terms are loosely defined, I have lots of room to eat ice cream, popcorn, and other things I love.
Then, as I was in the shower this morning, I thought: “It is a wise man who knows when to throw away an old tee shirt” I often have these crazy or deep thoughts while showering. As I toweled myself off, I had a further thought that I should capture these thoughts. Why? Well I suspect it is because few of us humans have rational thoughts in the shower. That is probably why so many sing the shower.
So, I thought, would it be interesting if I could, or would, write something every day of the year. Then I realized I already missed the 1st and 2nd.
That is why one should not think of making resolutions for the new year.
Nor, should they place any merit for thoughts in the shower.
I’m now going to the garage carrying an old tee shirt that will become a new rag.
