December: it’s only a day away!


Tomorrow is December.

I’ll let that sink in for a minute.

Some of you might be dreading the arrival of the final month in our calendar year, but I’m so darn relieved. Sure, I have tons to do before the holidays–presents to buy, assignments to mark, books to write–but it will get done. I just want this year to be over. In fact, I’ve written a poem about it. Ready? Here goes!

Dear twenty-sixteen,

You are mean.

You act like a queen and I want to kick you in the spleen.

I’d rather deal with a whiny-ass tween.

Charlie Sheen, caffeine, Lean Cuisine.

I suck at poems.

The End.

You like? 😀 All I can say is, 2017 owes us BIGLY! I’m gonna do everything I can to make next year AWESOME for me and for you! One more month, my friends! We can do this!!!

    2016 can suck it. That is all.

    My house and my office are already decked out in everything Christmas, which is highly unusual for me, but I realize now it’s because I’m trying to hurry the season along. Hey, 2016, don’t let the door hit you on the way out!

      Damn right! Let’s do the gift-giving thing, ring in the New Year, and say buh-bye, talk-to-you-never to 2016!
