Three things happened today that I’m choosing to take as omens for the new year:
- I picked up what I thought was a piece of yarn from the floor and it turned out to be a slug.
It will be a year of unpleasant surprises.
- When eating out, I calculate the tip then add a bit so that the total is a whole dollar value. Tonight’s tip turned out to be $6.66.
It will be a year of repetition. Or the apocalypse. Probably the former.
- On the way home we saw two police cars pulling into a Dunkin Donuts parking lot.
It will be a year of stereotypes.
Unclear from the omens is whether I’ll actually start publishing on this site more than once a year. Hopefully yes, starting with the sixteen drafts I’ve written but never quite completed.
Edit: One more thing happened just after writing this – our cat peed in a (luckily) empty box sitting next to my desk. For others that might be an omen, but for us it’s unfortunately just business as usual.
It will be another year of Nature’s Miracle.
