The new year used to be the time you would write the wrong date on your checks, but who writes checks anymore. People sometimes make resolutions, but who carries through on those anymore. The night before used to be a time to gather in a big crowd , but who feels like that is a prudent choice anymore.
What about Top Ten lists? Who doesn’t like those right?
Top Ten words I used in my blogs:
Top Ten Annoyances
- Spam calls
- Spam email
- Spam comments
- Rude people
- Expiration dates
- Tik Tok
Top Ten Sports Bloopers
- When the player tripped
- When the fan
- When the goalie let that one in
- When the slam dunk wasn’t one
- When the ball got stuck
- When the ball bounced off his head
- When the animal ran on the field
- When the racecar wouldn’t start
- When the fan interfered with the play
- What that other funny think happened (that was hilarious)
We lost way too many people this year due to the pandemic: 5.5 million
Mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, grandparents, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, girlfriends, boyfriends, (is theyfriends a thing?), just friends . . .
We lost many public figures as well, the latest being Rev. Desmond Tutu and actress Betty White. Soon, news programs will air In Memorium segments, and we we will watch and say, “Oh yeah, I forgot about her/him.”
I just heard this song on the radio (who listens to radio anymore?). From way back in 2005. “Happy” New Year everyone.
