New Years is worse for me than any other Holiday. I was a much wilder man in my younger years and New Years eve always seemed to involve major life
events, like hook-ups with people I'd end up dating or knowing for a long time and that sort of thing. Even when I was in relationships, it was kind
of the one night to get sloppy drunk and wild as wild can be.
Now, sober and single, with a head filled with memories ( or at least partial memories ) of the ghosts of New Years Eve's past? I don't know how or
why, but it just eats at me in a way that nothing else really does. Kind of the loneliest night of the year for me.
I guess getting older doesn't help. I was reading an article about how Back To The Future got 2015 all wrong - and it dawned upon me that I remember
being pretty young, watching that movie, and thinking and feeling that 2015 might as well be 20 million BC because it was so far off...
Now here we are. No mini-instant dehydrated pizzas - no hoverboards - no self drying , self tailoring clothing.
PS: All things considered, I'm OK. Meds taken, movies to watch, cat snuggled up in my lap, dog laying at my feet and a HUGE pitcher of sweet iced tea
in the fridge.
PPS: I hope all of you are handling the end of the Holidays effortlessly and happily. If not? You know you're loved and have family and friends here!
Also, this thread can be bumped at any time should anyone need it! There's always some Federal Holiday just around the bend!!!
Best of luck and life to all of you in 2015!!!!
