Good Bye 2008 ~ Hello 2009

This night is the one night when one can determine their age of maturation. For some, it's EVERY Saturday night. But when you get to be a certain age, you stop defining your self by what new years eve plans you have. If you are home and in bed by 10pm, you're a real loser. (If you're in your early 20's) If you're older and happy; tomorrow is just another day. One you'll be able to appreciate if you wake up without a pounding hang over. Or heaven forbid, you wake up in the drunk tank at the county correctional facility. Now all my life I've managed to avoid the latter. (Not because I didn't deserve to be there) I owe my guardian Angel a great deal of gratitude. Fortunately I never did anyone any physical harm and I again I thank God and His angels for that.

These days, I'd rather stay home and watch reruns of CSI and Law and Order than risk being pulled over into a check point only to find a fume of C6H208 on my breath. I don't think I could pass one of those drunk tests while sober, let alone after a couple a beers.

Tonight I pray that nobody gets killed by a drunk driver. I pray that nobody I know gets pulled over and thrown in the tank. (as that changes your life forever) I pray that those that I love and care for, have boring New Years Eves like me. And like me, will wake up tomorrow like any other day with a clear mind, body and soul.

While we're at it, I pray that SONY decides to send me the following email:

Dear Ace Andres,

Now THAT would be a Happy New Year.
