We made mimosas with the left over champagne on News Year’s Day. Our New Year’s Eve was no less eventful than anyone else’s this year.
I’ve never been one to go wild on New Year’s. Because of Covid, I didn’t feel guilty about it this year. In fact, the virus makes the so-called holiday less relevant than ever. I doubt anyone thought twice about January 1 at the height of the plague in Europe.
Still, if I had to choose a resolution for myself, that resolution would be to play more basketball. My in-laws gave me a basketball for Christmas. I had it outside for the first time today. I spent twenty minutes shooting baskets while my wife and daughter watched and laughed.
Later, we went home to put the baby to bed and spend some time with our bottle of gin, though I don’t have a resolution to drink more.
