Happy New Number Day!


And here we are again. The time when humans pretend that everything will change at their den. They pretend things are fresh because of a number. Oh, things will be different as they slumber. Hey, at least some of that childhood imagination is alive. Even if you can only get it by taking some deep deep dive. Maybe the Tooth Fairy will show too. Hey, your teeth could be old and fall out, so may as well get some dough given to you.

Here's the magic day.
Shout and go all hooray.
For things are going to change.
Doesn't that seem strange?

Nope? You touched in the head?
Maybe you fell outta bed.
That ought to be an excuse.
Wait. Maybe you'll ask a moose.

Or get that golden goose.
Let's go back to the moose.
I hear it's on the loose.
Like your magic lips or widening caboose.

What? We saw one.
It wasn't fun.
It was rather wide.
Now back to the magic side.

Things will change.
Back to the strange.
Must you repeat?
Can't I just hit delete?

Here we go.
Eye roll in tow.
You are going to...
Not do anything new.

You will pretend.
May even bend.
Take in this or that.
But then just chew the fat.

Back to the norm.
That is the form.
May as well sign it.
For new is full of spit.

Yep. Your spittle and slime.
For you wait for magic time.
Then the snot flows.
Right out your nose.

You cry and you moan.
You're back to alone.
Your resolutions didn't stick.
Next magic day they'll surely click.

Pffffffffffft. Nothing is new but the number on the date. 2020 is nice looking to my OCD though out of the gate. But nothing will, is going to, or whatever the hell else humans say to make you think change will come. It is only going to come if you get off your bum. Whether the date says 2020 or 1933 or 2055. You want change? You'll have to do more than do some placebo deep dive. You can do it now or five months ago. No magic day is in tow. Nope. It's not fresh either at your sea. You still stink as much as you did yesterday so let the shower fly free. Are you a resolutions setter? Maybe you are also a platypus better? Same odds they tell us. Or do you hide it behind goals and not the resolution fuss? Good to have goals any day, but a number changing isn't going to make things magically come or go away. Unless you can change the numbers in the lottery draw. Then you and your billions can change many a flaw. Oh, and taxes will again come due. The new number let's the IRS get you. And you just got older as well. But that is every day where you dwell. Now that the cat has crushed all spirits with this cheery pass, I'll just continue on being an ever so poking fun at humans little rhyming ass.

Happy New Number Day Or Whatever They Say!

  4. It may be just another day but, it's a starting point for many who need a fresh perspective. Most resolutions are short lived as we are creatures of habit. I will just say Happy New Year!
    I personally like the sound of 2020 but, I know it will carry many challenges ahead.

    challenges and solutions....and of course peace and love...

    1. Yeah, some do need it to get off their arse and use the whole fresh start thing, but few actually stick with it. 2020 has a nice ring, and we shall see what comes to be.

  5. Some people do think Jan 1st is a magical number. The gym is always crowded in January. By February, it's back to ghost town! Lol. Happy 2020!

  6. Haha true, it’s just a number that changed. But the number does seem to have a big placebo effect :-)
    I wish you and your loved one a very happy new year!

    1. True. I suppose it is better than placebo pills. Hope you and the crew have a great new year too.

  7. What did you see once? A moose or a giant caboose? Lol

    I do agree that it’s just another day and that most goals don’t stick. That’s why I try to focus on what we will do during the upcoming year instead of how I’ll change. Although, I really want to get blinds for my windows this year. Does that count as a new year goal?? Lol

    ReplyDelete

    1. The latter...sadly

      Focusing on what you'll do is a good way to go about it indeed. Could be a goal, but will you get them or be like the gym folks and never get em?

      Delete
    2. Oh, I'm sorry that your poor eyes had to see the caboose. Although, if I was given the choice, I would pick that over a moose any day!

      No, we must get them. We have gigantic windows on both sides of the house. The walls are practically all see through the windows are so big. Apparently my hubby gets a little annoyed when we're eating. He thinks the neighbors are popping pop corn and watching us eat as their favorite TV show.

    3. Bah, moose aren't so bad. Beat a bear.

      hahaha well you never know. You could charge them a fee for all your great entertainment.

      Delete
    4. When I travel up north I get freaked out by the moose crossing signs. So to freak myself out more, I google car crashes with moose. There’s no chance of survival. You should see me driving through there, trembling, and gripping the steering wheel so tight that my hands turn red!

      Delete
    5. Yeah, you hit a moose you are pretty much done. But if you aren't going very fast you'll be good. Same with a bear, you are toast if you hit one of them too. Deers are 50/50.

      Delete
    6. Imagine hitting one and their legs start kicking you in the face through the windshield. Ughhh I cringe just thinking about that.

      Delete
    7. Yeah, that would suck. Survive and then get kicked in the head, dead.

  8. Happy New Year! We had a shitty 2019, so I opted not to do the superstitions we did last year. No corned beef, cabbage or black eyed peas here. Maybe chucking that aside will bring me a better 2020.

    1. Hopefully so, as those things can take a hike any old day.

  9. Another new number and not from Fred Astaire
    My husband is like you but I don’t despair.
    Just live one’s life as best as one can
    The number doesn’t matter, plan or no plan.

  10. It will take everyone months to write the new year correctly :) But I do like the sound of 2020 better than 2019. Happy New Year Pat! Hope its a kind one!

  14. There's just something about the beginning of a new year, though, that perks most people up and gives them a challenge to have a good year. It lasts a few days, perhaps and then all is back to normal. Or maybe not. It's fun anyhow. Happy New Year to you.

    1. Yeah, people use it and it is a nice thought, while it lasts.

  15. No resolutions for me
    I don't give a flip at my sea
    I try to live my best each day
    no matter what the calendar may say
    Otherwise my expectations are too high
    leaving me on couch to whine and cry

    Happy New Year, Pat
    Nothing for you, Cat

  16. January 4th...already 4 days in. We had a great new year here, with the newest little grand being born. Her parents don't want her online, but she's healthy and beautiful and we're all over the moon for her already. Happy New Years all around. May it be a year of delightful human poop machines, animals and stories being sold!

  21. Lots of new
    At my zoo!
    A new knee,
    But not for me!
    A new phone
    That works as shown!!!
    Took 12 days,
    But gone is the haze
    Of phones that don’t work
    Driving be berserk!
    (Darn! Safari’s still giving me pain!
    At least Firefox seems to be without shame...)
