It's Not Too Late

Happy New Year. Welcome 2006. It is now officially too late for some things.
  1. It's too late to pay your property taxes for 2005.
  2. It's too late to be named Time's Person of the Year 2005.
  3. It's too late to go to rodeo clown school. (Trust me on this. Have you looked at your ass in a mirror since the Henderson's Christmas party? You ain't gonna be able to wear the barrell.)
  4. It's too late to stop smoking in 2005.
  5. It's too late to follow the Dead on tour. (Way too late. Stop thinking about it.)

However, we now have a brand shiny new year to play with and that gioves us all kinds of time to do some things.

  1. Say, "I love you." Be sincere and grateful and say it often.
  2. Say, "Thank you." See #1
  3. Make a difference. Find a cause and promote it. Volunteer your time. A check is good but it's not enough.
  4. Teach someone. Help them learn to read or to read signs in the wooods. You'll both be better.
  5. Stop whining. You're not helping anyone. Help find a solution and fix it.
  6. Think twice before you speak. It's never too late for that.

It feels a little too early to say I love you.

Is "like" ok?
