I see Deke bailed on us yesterday the lazy bum.
Not that I have much to say today either to be honest.
Except that if you made it through the holidays so far and didn’t kill any family members (or vice-versa) and you didn’t get decapitated by Santa’s sleigh sled-blade-thingies or pummeled by reindeer hoofs, don’t get cocky.
New Years Day is coming up. You know: Amateur Night. Folks who don’t drink heavy most of the year suddenly think they can pound them down all night and then drive home. Believe me I know. I did it myself a few times until I wised up and realized that staying at home and cuddling up with someone and with something bubbly to ring in the new year was much nicer. I’ll take falling asleep on the couch over a DWI or getting hit by one any day.
If you feel you just won’t survive unless you’re out on the town, just be careful. Be careful of others and be carefly of yourself.
Let’s all come home safe and start off 2009 with as few tragedies as possible…aside from the 5-pound holiday weight gain.
