NOW THAT'S FUNNY
Governor Chris Christie says he will not be making any New Year's resolutions this year. He claims that he has resolved to lose weight about 35 times, and it never works. He has trouble keeping the resolutions.
This surprises me. He seems to have no trouble at all doing whatever he sets his mind to do. If I were him, I'd resolve to drop 50 pounds, and then just blame the bloated government spending or the entrenched teachers' unions when the weight doesn't come off.
Now, he says, he and his wife make resolutions "to each other". They sit down on New Year's Eve, assess the year ahead, and later, compare notes "to see how well we do."
That is so romantic!
Maybe my husband and I should try that. Usually, we just get together with friends and family to drink and overeat. This year, we could make the evening count by "resolving" to each other.
