You’re adequate just the way you are

Posted By on December 29, 2016

We’re about to kick the year 2016 square in its ball sack and greet another wonderful twelve months worth of bitching and complaining into our homes. Step on in 2017 and pleaseResolution wipe your feet on the rug before you fuck up my house.  Can you honestly say that you’re happy another year has passed?  I know some of us have had very difficult years.  Some have found new work, some lost jobs, got married or got divorced and others lost loved ones from their lives way to soon.  But with each passing year we’ll lose more family and friends as our own fleshy biped transportation vessel continues to wear down and we’re less able to do all the things we use to be able to do.  Careening head first into a new year does nothing to erase the past, it just guarantees we’re all getting older here folks.

The pending new year is always a time to reflect on that past and look to the future. With that, many of you are probably making your LONG list of New Year’s resolutions.  You know, those things you claim that you’re going to do to make 2017 happier, healthier and more prosperous than the previous year.  Hey, whatever floats your boat there Skipper, but it’s all bullshit.   I get it, some people really put their nose to the brimstone and follow their scrawled inspirational aspirations they think will make them a better overall person, and the rest of you are like me.  Booze guzzling cigar junkies with no need to change!

I gave up thinking I’m going to make any life altering adjustments just because I have to get a new calendar. If it wasn’t important enough for me to consider taking up jogging in May when the weather is gorgeous out, why in hell would I think that early January in Wisconsin would be a good time to start? How many commercials have you seen pushing the nonsense that chubby chicks are just as beautiful as any Victoria Secret model and you need to be happy in your own body?  Well, that’s what we fat bastids are now doing also!  Love us for who we are because we didn’t climb to the top of the food chain to eat more gains while wearing tight little workout shorts that make your wedding tackle yearn for air more than Whitley Houston in her bath tub.calvin

You’re perfect just the way you are so put away the pen and paper, open that bottle of expensive Whiskey you have been saving and grab yourself a cigar to kick off making it through another trip around the sun. Whether it was a good or bad year for you, you’re still here and you have somebody that cares about you.  That in itself is reason enough to celebrate.  So Happy New Years to all of my Brothers of the Leaf and look out 2017 cause here we come.

The first Cigar Night of the year will be on January 3rd at Prohibition Spirits and Cigar Lounge.  Hope you can all make it as we kick off our 11th year as The Brotherhood of the Leaf.
