At any rate, all of the talk about champagne and New Year's Eve parties got me to thinking a little bit and it dawned on me that I have never been to a true New Year's Eve party where people got together to celebrate the end of the year and welcome in the new one. Sure, I've spent New Year's Eves with friends perhaps watching movies and eating pizza or playing board games but I've never been to an honest-to-goodness dancing and drinks kind of soirée. I'm going to be 50 in less than a year and I've never been to a real New Year's Eve party - how depressing. Even more depressing was the realization that I've never had a true New Year's Eve kiss. Ouch.
There certainly won't be any party this year as I'm going to be spending the vast majority of New Year's Eve at work as Monday is my regular 16-hour shift which means I should get home a bit after 11:00 p.m. That should be just enough time to climb into my pj's before I join the girls for a glass of sparkling cider and then change the calendar over while I wonder just where in the heck it was that the year got off to.
So, that's what I'm going to be doing but what about the rest of you? This week's questions asks -
I don't believe in making New Year's resolutions - the only one I've ever really kept was the one that I made to not make any more resolutions! - but perhaps I'll resolve to go to a real New Year's Eve party one of these years. I bet a New Year's kiss would be nice ...
