It’s the day after the day after Christmas. It is also a Monday, and this results in a double-whammy of disapproval.
To top off the twofold excuse for blahness, The Prude is feeling churlish. She isn’t happy with herself. She engaged in too much excessive overindulgence.
As a counter-measure she will draw on the universal antidote to personal dissatisfaction: a Resolutions List.
But Your Prude is also a purist, in a murky sort of way, and knows that the proper time for life-changing resolutions is New Year’s Day.
So she will content herself with making some
This Week resolutions.
T.W. Resolution #1
The Prude will not, until New Year’s Eve, consume any foodstuff whose name contains a vowel.
T.W. Resolution #2
She will not inadvertently croon ‘Rocking Around the Christmas Tree’.
T.W. Resolution #3
She will resist the temptation to buy 30 rolls of Christmas wrapping paper because it is 75% off.
T.W. Resolution #4
She will not watch every episode of her ‘Perry Mason Season 1’ gift in a single sitting.
T.W. Resolution #5
She will burn her balsam-scented candle even when she doesn’t have company because it makes her happy.
T.W. Resolution #6
She will enjoy her peppermint coffee till it is gone instead of trying to save it till it for a special occasion.
T.W. Resolution # 7
The Prude will not succumb to post-Christmas blues. She will not.
DOES ANYONE HAVE SOME CHCLT SHE COULD SHARE?
