Statistically, January sucks for marriages and old people. They announced as much on tv so it must be true. I can attest to some of that, since I recall asking for my divorce in January many years ago. Apparently, people get through the holidays and either die/get hurt/need surgery or ask for a get out of jail card.
My 86 year old aunt just fell and broke her hip and wrist. At least she's already sitting up after surgery on Friday. My girlfriend's 85 year old mother, who still bowls, had to have a shot into her eye for a burst blood vessel last week. Another girlfriend's 90 year old mom just had surgery on her back. Of course, she's already asking when she can resume her cycling and badminton. The bad news is they all got hurt. The good news is they're already up and at 'em.
Somebody else I know just got his marriage put on notice. A little something that came out of left field. Maybe D-Day should be rescheduled for some time in January.
To top everything off, yesterday Brett Favre found out he won't be going to Arizona, so I can already chalk up this January as a total bust.
How's yours going?
