Is there a tradition you have for New Year’s Eve? Pizza rolls for dinner. I don’t know how that got started, but it’s our tradition.
Do you have any hope or reason you find that next year will be better? Other than the same stale optimism I bring into every New Year’s, I have a feeling we’re in for twelve months of the same-old same-old. And not the old same-old same-old, the new one with all of its mask-shaming and vax-shaming.
What’s the biggest personal lesson you learned during 2021? That the more you stay inside, the more you want to stay inside. I can count on one hand (okay, maybe two hands) the numer of times I left the house this year, and the last couple of times, I dreaded it.
