I Met A Stranger

Guess who I just met at the station.

2022! That’s who.

Though a nice-looking fella, it definitely has a fetish for 2s. On the other hand, maybe that extra ‘2’ would give it more power than its friend 2021, who had quite a tough time fighting the modern viruses.

Well then, gentlemen, and not-so-gentle men, here’s a toast to the “power of 2.”

Welcome, stranger, AKA New Year 2022. I hope your bags are loaded with peace and health.


A Midnight Visitor

The last night must have been the coldest one this winter. Around midnight, enveloped in a thick fog, a visitor tiptoed into our neighborhood. Hoping to scare it away, some folks started bursting crackers, but nothing could stop its silent march. I will give you a clue to the visitor’s identity – “21”.

Yeah, that’s my weird way of saying Happy New Year 2021.

My advice – don’t bother bursting crackers or making other funny noises. Whatever you try, it won’t go away.
