It was only a few days ago that I was basking in the glow of my kick arse New Year’s Eve – remember that cool party with the Bruce Springsteen cover band? And then I got an email from a friend who wrote…
“Just back from South Africa for New Year’s!”
New Year’s in South Africa?
And then I get an email from his wife which read, “We went cage diving with great whites. Nuts? Still can’t believe I did that.”
Ok, not only did they go to South Africa but they swam with sharks? Who does that?!
And then I get another email from the husband, “And we pet cheetahs too!!”
Oh come on. Did I mention that I danced to “Glory Days” until 12:30 in the morning?! Oh yes I did. So don’t try to one up me with your fancy cheetahs and man eating sharks.
Speaking of the new year, Dylan’s Pre-K class had to come up with their own New Year’s resolutions. Here’s what some of the kids wrote…
“Learn to do a cartwheel.”
“Learn to write letters better.”
“Learn to play guitar.”
And this is Dylan’s….
“I hope to get stronger and be able to pick up heavy things.”
What exactly is she planning to pick up in 2010? Is she concerned that she will get trapped under something heavy? Is she hoping to rearrange our living room furniture? Does she want to supplement her non-existent allowance by starting her own moving company?
I’ll let you know how she progresses with the weight training. You know, in case you need help lifting some heavy things. I heard her rates are unbelievably reasonable.
