Kickass

Kickass 1/2/22

Kickass, the doorstop dog, reports that the keeper, being painfully aware of the ravages of aging on the memory capacities of members of his age group, points to a positive: yesterday he adopted a number of serious News Year’s resolutions, and today he can only remember the one having to do with keeping an adequate supply of medicinal brandy on hand.

The keeper is sure that there were other resolutions that would have put discipline and organization into his slovenly ways, but he cannot remember what they were.  One, he thinks, might have been aimed at limiting his computer surfing time, but he can’t be certain.

The solution, of course, is to forget the whole resolution nonsense and the inevitable guilt that it produces: the keeper seems to remember once going well into January before abandoning a resolution that limited his consumption of waistline-growing treats such as beer and nuts.

On this second day of January, the keeper resolves anew to never again   put his cursor on one of those “ad” internet sites, and to hug Phyllis more often.

He is sure he will remember one of those two.
