Or maybe it's the metaphysical cliff of the odometer rolling over on the calendar, I'm not sure. Either way, last day of a not fun year, and an inevitable pause for reflection, no matter how hard I tried to resist doing that, since, essentially, I've been doing that all year, without much success. Maybe something will click in 13. Hopefully something will click in 13. It has a rather low bar to clear, as the standard set by 12 isn't very high. So here's to clearing that bar by 5280 feet.
And the same to you, regardless of how well your 12 went, I hope your 13 beats it by 1760 yards, or 63360 inches, whichever suits your fancy. I'd offer a metric option, but I am, after all, an American. Either that or I can't find my calculator.
Enjoy your Eve, and roll on 13.
And though this isn't a resolution, this next year will see my weight dip under 170 for the first time since 2004. Just sayin'
