An after Christmas GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, it’s the second furthest day from Christmas 2023. Yesterday being the furthest. Just an FYI: 363 days until NEXT CHRISTMAS!
Technically Talking Tuesday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s TUESDAY…Technically!
Apologies to my loyal readers for missing out the last couple chances to blog. I was out sick Friday and what with the holidays and all. Then, yesterday, well, I was just lazy. Went to jits and got my ass kicked because I had no lung capacity as I recover from being sick. Thought I had more wind than that…NOT!
At this time of year, the last week of December, it seems like NOTHING gets done. It feels like a bunch of time where everyone is in “coast mode.” You know the feeling, just coast in to the finish line of another year.
Nobody has any real plans to do much. At least not until the start of the new year.
No real stretching going on to get ready for 2023. After all, you don’t want to pull a hammy sprinting into the new year’s goals and what not.
I mean has anyone set up a goal where they said they will accomplish whatever on December 27th? Nope.
Even a quick glance through history doesn’t really have much. Except, maybe, in 2008 the Detroit Lions became the first NFL team to lose ALL 16 games of their NFL season. Prior to that nobody had done that. They picked up Matt Stafford for their first pick in the draft.
I think that’s why there might be a high level of depression after Christmas. Sort of the Holiday Hang Over. The whole “Now What” question that we try and answer. What makes it worse is we do it every year. Then, to add to it, if Santa dropped a trip to somewhere in your lap that left today…NOPE! The airlines are STILL cancelling flights.
None the less, I have a proposal to the powers that be. Perhaps we move Christmas to the 20th. Then, we have Christmas Eve on the 29th, Christmas Day the 30th, New Years Eve the 31st and New Years Day the 1st of Jan. Then, there is no gap where people mill about waiting for the New Year. It just goes BAM! All done! Holidays over without a gap.
Sure would be convenient don’t ya think?
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember pirates get their hooks at…SECOND HAND STORES! HAHAHAHAHAHA…ARRRRR!
