New Year's Resolution?
Or...."What more can a poor woman do." There's the question around here. I've never made New Year's resolutions, for the most part.
But maybe this year I shall: I resolve to have more fun.
This doesn't seem like much, but "fun" has mostly been beyond my capacity. Yet, having enjoyment in simple, silly things might improve my somber disposition. Not that it needs improving: that's what I was given.
But still....It might be nice to have more fun. It might add to the human race's overall positive state.
So....the next question is "what's fun?" (Or, as I often say, "Wot ees thees FUN of which you speak?")
What I envision is a table with a lace tablecloth and a deck of cards and a bottle of something...ice water, perhaps, or schnapps? And a friendly card partner waiting to shuffle and deal. (This isn't original...Lidia Bastianich has a picture of her and her mother, perhaps, in such a setting on one of her books.)
I might as well be picturing me flying through the air....that might be fun, too. But I'd rather be sitting down.
New Year's Resolutions are not easily made by some of us. Me, especially.
