New Year's Eve

I am very good at New Year's Resolutions. I only resolve things that I am absolutely sure I will or will not do in the next year.

Here are 2016's resolutions.

*I will not vote for Donald Trump or any Republican running for President.

*I will not buy a hover board or a new car.

*I will vote for Bernie Sanders in the CT primary and for whoever is the Democratic nominee in November.

*I will not join the NRA.

*Also, I will not buy a gun in 2016.

*I will not lose 25 pounds or shave my beard.

*I will eat an egg every other day.

*I will not drink Scotch.

*I will walk the dog every morning and night.

*I will drink Pinto Grigio a lot.

*I will not travel to Syria or join Isis.

*I will smoke as many cigarettes as I will.

*I will not swim the English Channel.

*I will sleep as late as I want every day but Sunday and Tuesday.

*I will shower when I think I should.

*I will love Bern absolutely--and my children and granddaughters as well.

*I will write on my blog a lot.

*I will not eat raw liver.

*I will not eat cooked liver either. Or quail eggs. Or calf brains. Or the intestines of pigs. Or duck (I just can't eat a duck.)

*I will grill on the deck as much as is possible.

*I will not ever drive 100 miles an hour.

*I will not apply to graduate school in psychology.

So why is it so hard to keep New Year's resolutions....?
