Sensible Resolutions

new-years-resolutionIn 2015 I resolve to:

– Eat more yellow cake with chocolate frosting.

– Read more first paragraphs and then stop.

– Almost finish watching a whole season of something.

– Eat more Costco trail mix.

– In the course of any tragic/disturbing/incoherent situation which grips the nation, hold off on formulating an opinion until having an opinion becomes unnecessary, because the zeitgeist has moved on.

– Do not learn to drive.

– Praise myself for becoming less kneejerk judgemental of other people.

– Attempt to at least give the false appearance of becoming less kneejerk judgemental of other people.

– Decide that being kneejerk judgemental of other people is actually a medically classifiable disorder over which I have no control. So I’m not a bad person, I’m just someone living with Kneejerk Judgement Disorder.

– Eat more chocolate pecan turtles.
