Well, it's the New Year. I can tell because my pants are once again choking my ovaries.
They're also strangling my kidneys, intestines, and spleen. My liver? Has its own battles to fight.
My pants are assholes.
I bet yours are, too.
No wonder. The main damn four food groups these past few weeks have been cookies, fudge, candy and cookie dough. Strangers have asked me when the baby is due.
And then I punch them in the throat.
My healthy and wholesome recent lifestyle - and profoundly tight pants - signal that it's time to
I bet yours are, too.
Spend more time with family!
Stop punching strangers in the throat!
Yeah, right. Fail, fail and fail some more.
I have good intentions. But somehow, throughout the year, I get sidetracked with more important things. Such as working, sleeping and Googling pictures of Mike Rowe. I have a Dirty Job for you, Mike Rowe...
No more. I've decided that it's time to get real. Be honest. Ask yourself: What can I truly accomplish in one year's time?
Here at the Lighten Up! Self Help Center (Motto: Better Living Through Chemistry), I have put together some practical, do-able goals for all of us.
No thanks is necessary. Just send cash.
Or a nice box of wine.
Repeat after me, party people:
-I resolve to eat healthier potato chips.
-I resolve to go to church bi-annually.
-I resolve to help my fellow man be less idiotic.
-I resolve to get more sleep -ing pills
-I resolve to learn new things in the bedroom.
-I resolve to be a nicer person to animals.
-I resolve to pray for more money.
-I resolve to be a better role model for crackheads.
-I resolve to volunteer to punch idiots in the throat.
-I resolve to give more money to the Walmart and Target corporations.
-I resolve to quit drinking non-alcoholic beverages.
-I resolve to control my road rage when asleep in the passenger seat.
-I resolve to be happier about my humdrum existence.
-I resolve to cuss less at church. Bi-annually.
-I resolve to read more erotica.
-I resolve to quit smoking crack.
-I resolve to eat less vegetables.
These we can do, folks. No more New Year's fails. Yes sir, I am feeling really good about it.
And that ain't just the crack-pipe talkin'.
