Oh Yeah... Bullshit! by A. Dacosta Brathway

January 2nd, Friday... So, what's it going to be? Lose weight? Stop smoking? What? It's 2015 and I am sure the resolutions are flying! But why? You know you are not going to follow through... If you're fat on January 1, you will be fat on April 1 (April Fools Day!).

Don't get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with making new year's resolutions. The problem is sticking with them! Hey, get in shape. Prolong your life! Do it year round. Why wait for January 1 to be your starting point every year? (I know, you love the Ground Hog's day effect!) Why say you are going to start going to church when you know you are a practicing atheist? Don't say you are going to stop smoking when you know you love weed! (Oops, my bad. You meant cigarettes!)

Have I ever made any new year's resolutions? Hell yeah! Never followed through on any of them! I once said that I would stop cursing... Sshhiitt! I used to think that I had some sort of control over my life! Sshhiitt! Oh yeah, there was that time when I said I would stop drinking alcohol... (Sshhiitt, I just knocked over my Jack!) Hold on, my computer is acting weird... Oh sshhiitt, I think it's gonna blow...
