Today is the last day of the year. Hours from now everyone is required to be happy. Mind you, nothing is as vein-popping stressful as being required to be happy. That is why the rate of domestic violence, suicide and depression escalates during the holidays. If you think that those dumbass people who were burned or blasted by fire crackers were accidental, think again, for they may be suffering from depression. Thus, lighting a fire cracker is actually their way of unconsciously yet ineffective way of finishing off their bleak atoricious feeling during the holidays.
Today is the last day of the year. I promised myself to clean and clear all the clutter in my house. One of the scraps is a leftover Christmas wrapping paper. Wrapping paper destroys forests. Just imagine the vast quantities of paper required to wrap all Christmas gifts around the world. It could be as vast as the forests in the Philippines – that is if there are still forest left in this country. I decided to keep the leftover wrapping paper and use it next year.
Today is the last day of the year. At exactly twelve midnight I will have the opportunity to practice my annual primal scream therapy. This is the only time that I can scream my lungs out without disturbing the neighbors. Screaming is good! My screech and howl during this time of the year can truly scare away all the crappy bad spirits lurking around my demented nonsensical world.
Today is the last day of the year. I wont be surprised if Nengkoy and Aunt Iya will be wearing their annual polka dotted “dusters” for goodluck when they welcome the exciting new year…
