Spiffing y'all up, one typo at a time
Happy 2013, y’all! It should be a fun, lucky 13 kind of year. Well, except for the triskaidekaphobics among us.
Are you the kind of person who makes resolutions each January? Yours truly is planning the typical eat better, give up soft drinks, get back to exercising things. And I do have two large (can’t print them here for fear of jinxing them) goals for my 2013.
I certainly applaud y’all for trying to do what it takes to create a new you this new year. I am proud of you for declaring it’s time to:
• stop smoking
• take up a new hobby
• clean out your garage
• stop writing “your welcome”
Get on out there and tell the world about your big plans! Have your Facebook friends help keep you accountable! But for the love of sweet Baby New Year, please remember one thing:
You may, in fact, be hoping for LOOSER jeans. A LOOSE belt. LOOSE Spanx. (Do they exist?) And, after a couple of months of eating right and exercising, I certainly hope you’re a really big LOSER.
Are ya having trouble remembering the difference between the two? You know that old saying “loose as a goose.” When faced with deciding how to spell the word you need, remind yourself that the word that sounds like “goose” is also spelled like “goose.”
Two dear friends have resolved to get back to blogging this year. Stop by and give ’em a read, won’t you?
