It’s always a little sad in early January, isn’t it? There’s a weird vibe. Not everything is back to normal, but it’s not Christmas either, and it takes a few days or more to get used to a routine that doesn’t involve red and green. The holidays are over and done with, and it’s always a bit of a letdown.
But a new year can also be invigorating. There’s so much “new” to look forward to, so much to do, so much promise. New beginnings! And one big reason to be glad 2017 is here is that I’ll no longer have to watch that #%&*! fios commercial where Gary breaks the world sled jump record and impresses his family and friends (and that’s the minute-long director’s cut, where we learn who holds the old record).
I’ve seen that commercial so many times this winter that I really do want to see Gary dislocate his shoulder. Hopefully someone will call Child Services on his mom for letting him jump.
