Another Year Gone
I'd love to take all my readers out for a night of wild drinking and carousing, but alas, I'm living on a fixed income and my creditors think I should send them the money instead (they're weird that way). So I guess I'll just stay home and eat the birthday meal my son is preparing for me -- meat loaf, pinto beans, mashed potatoes and cheesecake (my favorite kind of "cake").
I know that sounds like a diet-buster, but isn't there some law somewhere that says diets don't count on your birthday? If there isn't, then there should be. I think my doctor and my daughter (a founding member of the diet police) can forgive me for one day of excess. I promise I'll be good tomorrow (or at least the day after the cheesecake is all gone).
As you've probably noticed, I'm taking the day off from blogging (except for this silly post). I don't want to think about Republicans or other mean people on this day. I'll be back to posting what passes for wisdom in my rather abnormal brain tomorrow.
