Writer’s Workshop: Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot…

We’re 58 hours from the New Year here in Georgia (53 hours World Time), and I, like many of you, am happy to see it go. Not that it was a bad year, it was more like… enh… I spent most of it in the house, only partially interested in what was going on in the rest of the world. I don’t watch the news, but that doesn’t mean I’m totally unaware of what was and is happening. I’m just watching with a sort of bemused detachment.

We plan on ringing in the new year pretty much the same way we always have: we’re going to stay home and will likely be sleep at the magical midnight hour. We will continue our long-standing tradition of having pizza rolls for dinner, and at around 9 PM I’ll go upstairs to have my leg compressed. At midnight, Mary and I will exchange kisses and best wishes for the coming year, then we’ll go to bed. This will be our 45th New Year’s together.

Happy New Year, y’all!

I put my leg in a sleeve, which is attached to the machine by several air hoses. The machine inflates and deflates several air chambers that push the lymph up my leg and into the system as a whole, dumping a lot of it into my bladder, which I then dispose of in the usual fashion…
