Besides, nobody ever says, "young coot or middle-aged coot", so I was forced into it.
Supposing I was a coot with experience ... and supposing I actually did make New Years Resolutions ... they might go something like this ...
Resolution # 1: Remember I'm part of something bigger than me and that future chicks are depending on me to not muck things up.
Resolution #2: Try to be a better team player, but continue to go my own way whenever I need to do so. I suppose that makes me a poor team player, huh?
Yes, but isn't that why you make resolutions?
Resolution #3: Continue venturing out and soaking up new experiences, but try not to take yourself too seriously ... Down Ego, Down! Good boy ...
Resolution #4: Remember you can be gone in a flash, each day is a gift and the next one is not guaranteed.
I suppose my resolutions would be similar to those ... if I were a coot ... and old ... and the type to make resolutions.
Happy New Years!
