Sometimes when you have nothing special planned, special things happen.
On one of the coldest New Year’s Eve days in recent history, it was time to head out for a margarita pizza: Tomatoes, Basil, Cheese, Oil and Garlic.
It was heavenly.
No one except the old Chicken Butt in the place, waiting for the Eagles game at 1pm.
Then Carl walks in and since we were the only 2 idiots in the joint, we started chatting, drinking beer and watching the game.
“Hey Carl, let’s do shots.”
Chocolate covered cherries, rum chatas…. whatever !
Forget the cold.
All of a sudden, it was getting mighty toasty.
“Can someone turn on the AC please?”
For a few hours, the frigid weather melted away, as we laughed and carried on about nothing in particular.
A perfect way to spend a frosty afternoon.
Home now, and getting ready to bundle up in my new fabulous robe.
Will I see the ball drop?
Not a chance.
Besides, I have seen plenty of balls dropping in my lifetime.
Happy New Year, everyone.
2017 had its highs and lows, just like any year.
Regardless of the issues, I tried to enjoy every day.
After all, life is not always a chocolate covered cherry.
Or is it?
