January 2

On the second day of this very new year, I wrote to friends, went out to run an errand, and otherwise goofed off. I had the option of taking a day off today, since most of the law firm was doing just that. Knowing that our busiest time of the year comes in the next couple of months, I thought it better to take the day for myself and start out the working year on Monday.

There is much benefit in taking a goof-off day every so often.

During the goofing time, I was watching television, and heard a commercial for a painkiller. I'm not sure whether I want to laugh or cry at this: the man taking the drug announced that his doctor had told him he was suffering from "painful arthritis."

I'm glad I had checked the calendar before leaving home for my errand. Otherwise I might have wound up terribly confused in the drugstore, where alongside the marked-down Christmas items there were Valentine's items and Easter candy.

And that's the news from here.


I have been participating this year in Holidailies, a group of writers who promised to try very, very hard to update daily all the month of December. The time has been extended through January 6, for those who wish to continue. I was familiar with the work of quite a few of the writers, and have really enjoyed becoming familiar with others.
