Subject: It Is Resolved.
Everyone is sitting at the table eating leftovers and such for dinner. There are leftover Christmas cookies, some lasagna, pigs in a blanket and a bunch of other little leftover dishes.
“It’s suddenly 2008. Did you guys make resolutions? What are they?”
“I’m going to try to lose some weight this year. Well, as soon as these cookies are gone anyway.” Tabitha says, picking up a chocolate snowball from the plate.
“Would you hate me if I said my resolution was to bake more cookies? It’s not though, don’t worry. I want to write more. Something that’s more of a story than the blog.”
“Didn’t you say you were going to try to write a script out of the blog? Did you ever do that?”
“Nope. I still intend to, I just ..haven’t.”
“Ahh. Okay then. I’d like to find a better job this year, preferably one that nets me a bit more money.”
“Yeah, money never hurts.”
“I’m going to try to cut down on my frivolous spending. It couldn’t hurt to actually save some money beyond my bankroll for poker, or even to start playing at a higher level. You’re not going to make a resolution are you Billy?”
“Nope. I’m not a resolution type of person.”
“Billy’s very unresolved.”
“Or I just resolve what I resolve when I resolve it, instead of only today.”
“Okay then, give us one of your resolutions you have made in the past that you’re working on right now.”
“I told myself I’d learn to juggle well a couple of weeks ago. I haven’t gotten there yet. I did manage to get the motion down, but I can’t keep it up very long.”
“I like to juggle. Sometimes I juggle stale muffins after work. I should try to learn how to juggle the syrup bottles, dazzle the customers.”
“But this year I’m going to join one of my pals that comes into Starbucks occasionally on one of the Improv Everywhere missions. Probably not the No-Pants Subway Ride they’re doing in a couple of weeks though.”
“That could be fun. They have that mp3 experiment too.”
“That’s the one that everyone listens to the same file on their Ipod and runs around doing crazy stuff?”
“Pretty much. Should be par for the course for you.”
