The painful music playing outside is probably going to continue for all of tonight. . .doing no good to anyone except loss of a good night’s sleep and of self-respect and probably intoxicant-induced accidents at that. And celebrate how you might at a ‘brand-new’ year. . .tomorrow is going be no different than today.
I wish they just did away with it. . .and also with other meaningless celebrations like birthdays and anniversaries. I hate them all. New Year just reminds you how empty your year was. . .and birthdays remind you how old you’ve become. Growing up won’t hurt so bad, perhaps, if we just skipped the birthday celebrations.
