Reverb day 18 Try. What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it? (Author: Kaileen Elise)

First, let me tell you why I skipped yesterday, which was day 17, even though the number 17 is magical and delicious.

49 % 1. It’s so magical and delicious that it can get along without me.

49 % 2. I was so tired I was crying with laughter at the bobblehead Snoopy in the car in front of me.

2% 3. Yesterday’s prompt included the phrase “going forward” which is one of my most despised phrases in the English language, right up there with “the baby’s awake,” “I smell poop,” and “so, you working hard or hardly working?”

Last year, the only thing I remember wanting to try was some kind of regular exercise routine. The first few weeks of January went fantastic and then I got sick and then it was August.


I succeeded at the aerobics, in that I tried them. It went like this. I never went back, but I am OK with that.

I would like to try: not to get sick as much.
I would like to try: all different brands of gin!
I would like to try: a food? But not yogurt.

Skydiving? I feel like I should say skydiving, yet I have absolutely no interest in skydiving.


Reading a book of science fiction?

How about this. How about I will try the next thing that appears. Unless it’s yogurt.
