I don’t have time to write this entry right now, but I was so tired when I got home it wouldn’t have made any sense to try and write then. So let this entry serve as a precursor to the next one or two, or however many it takes to wrap up a year that I want to re-gift to someone else.
I’m sure you’ve all heard of the concept of regifting: someone gives you something you don’t want or need, and you put it away, to give to someone else who probably doesn’t want or need it. Some people have whole re-gifting closets. Emily Post and the etiquette people debated whether or not re-gifting was appropriate. It was a really big deal. Now we don’t really care. It’s that way with a lot of things.
I would love to regift this year, but I wouldn’t have put this year on anyone. And there’s so little of it left, at this point. The return for a refund period has expired and I have lost the receipt. The only thing left to do is to wrap it up and throw it to the back of the closet. And tell you what I want in the upcoming year so I can get it this time.
Oh, and I don’t write New Year’s Resolutions, per se, so don’t expect those. You’ll see what I do. Just note, I broke traditions and wrote NYR this past year, and you’ll see how bad that turned out.
