First Words of the Decade

"Well that was nice. Hopefully it wont all get destroyed in 2012."

That's the first thing my brother said after we watched the ball drop.

"Ricky! It's two years away, quit worrying!" was my dad's response.

My mom always puts quarters in the windows, a passed-down tradition that's supposed to bring prosperity in the coming year. So this year I put quarters in the garage windows too. Cuz that's where I live - albeit a pretty sweet garage with central heating, queen-size bed and indoor plumbing. Maybe I'll never leave. But that likely wouldn't be a very prosperous decision, even with the quarters trick.

Happy New Year, everybody!
