I will give my cell phone to the bartender upon entering any establishment at which I plan to drink more than one glass of wine. I will instruct him or her not to give it back to me until my tab is paid and I solemnly swear on the name of my ancient cat that I will not text or dial ANYONE.
I will eat a bag of chips or a plate of fries before I go out so that I won’t really feel tempted to text or dial the number of ANYONE, because after consuming said chips or fries, I will not be drunk after two glasses of wine.
I will never forget where I lost my credit card ever again, having only done that once in my life–last week.
I will learn to like a wine spritzer, because two of the horrid things equal one glass of wine, and then I won’t be tempted to text or dial ANYONE or need to eat greasy foods before I go out, and thus I will not forget where I left my credit card.
I will make my GM smile once every day, no matter what kind of mood he’s in, because he’s a good guy with a big heart, and he makes me laugh when he laughs–on those all-too-infrequent occasions.
I will give a shameless and continuing promotion to the folks who are getting RG Daughter and me to the Orange Bowl in style–ShuttleMiami.com. Thank you Gus and Michelle for your incredible generosity.
I will not give a crap about my age.
I will go to the beach every single day, if only for a moment while on a walk or run, because I can.
So maybe 2008 won’t be so bad.
