The Year of the Dragon

Posted on: January 13th, 2012

It’s never easy, but I have finally finished my New Year’s resolutions, which means that I broke my resolution from 2011 to have my 2012 list done by January 3rd.  In no particular order, here are my guiding principles for the year of the Dragon.

1.     Eat more canned vegetables and floss semi-weekly.

2.     Stop explaining to hotel staff the appropriate use “who” and “whom.”

3.     Send my nephew annotated (and autographed) pictures from my travels.

4.     Attend no fewer than 5 regular-season polo matches.

5.     Replace elbow patches on my Manchester corduroy blazer.

6.     Study up on the etymology of words so as not to defer to, “I think it’s Latin.”

7.     Always stuff my French toast.

8.     Practice whip skills.

9.     Direct community theatre production of “Death of a Salesman.”

10.      Build play structure in the motif of the “Seven Wonders of the World” for the cats.
