So, have you broken your resolutions yet? Yes you have, don’t lie to me. You make me sick. Which means I haven’t broken my big resolution, which was to be made sick by others more often. It’s much easier than losing weight or working out or hang gliding into a volcano or whatever you resolved to do. All I really need to do is look around, and something usually makes me sick. Whether it’s Washington DC, celebrities with the IQ of spinach dip, or coughing Asian ducks, the bile rises regularly. Which is fortuitous, since I also resolved to start the worlds largest bile collection. (Right now I stand third, behind Justin Beiber’s fluffer and Kirstie Alley’s late night chef) Anyway, don’t beat yourself up for breaking resolutions, they’re made to be broken. Anything that denies a human being cookies is evil. Go. Have a cookie. I’m off to refrigerate my bile collection.
