THE YEAR 2012!
A Brain Fart by Miss Fanny
So here we are in a new year. It’s 2012 and all I’ve got to say is Hallelujah! When you get my age you‘re just glad when you wake up in the morning, but if you really think about it I guess that we’re all are living on borrowed time.
This is a leap year, which means that there’s one extra day added to the 365 that we normally have. Unfortunately that gives folks an additional day to act a fool this year, and I’m sure that there are plenty of them out there who will prove me right.
Last year was pretty exciting for me. I’m sure that you heard about my good fortune. If you didn’t that means that you having been reading our story, especially the one about how my daughter-in-law, Hattie Collier, made headlines in Las Vegas—talk about somebody acting a fool! Of course Hattie and her two best friends, Bea and Connie, are still running around here trying to be some kind of detectives. It’s really pitiful, since they have no idea what they’re doing, and this year they have an extra day to prove how truly crazy they are.
If you ask me, half the world has gone crazy, and a new year probably won’t improve the situation, especially since it’s an election year too. Lord have mercy! I can’t wait until that’s over. In the next couple of months we’re gonna hear more lies coming from the candidates than the law ought to allow. I’m thinking about moving to a foreign country until the election is over, and I’ll mail in my absentee vote.
Speaking of foreign countries, one of my fondest wishes for this New Year is that I won’t have to hear one more word about that royal family in England. Didn’t America defeat that country way back when? You wouldn’t know it the way the media here slobbers all over every little thing that the “royals” do. Why a bunch of foreign welfare recipients who live off of the taxes of their hard working countrymen get so much attention I can’t understand. What they need to do is make some of those princes and princesses get some jobs and then they could support that queen mother. That ought to help the European financial crisis I keep reading about. It seems to me that the royal family is just some sort of show case and they are about as useless as the U.S. Congress, the Kardashians, and the other so-called reality shows, including the one about the fat folks. I’m tired of reading and hearing about all of them.
In spite of my complaints, I’m realistic and I know that there’s little hope that my wish for the year will come true. Like I said earlier, I’m just glad that I’m here to see another 365…oops, 366 days, and I’ll enjoy every one of them that the good Lord grants me. I hope that you do too.
This is Fanny Collier wishing you Happy Musings!
