Just got back from a lovely night at the ER where, long story short, I learned that I have the coronary arteries of a man 20 years my senior. So for the next three weeks I’m going to be drinking, smoking, napping, and lathering myself in red meat, butter, and gravy. Cause come New Year’s I’ve got some serious lifestyle changes to make for my New Year’s Resolutions.

I wish I had a creative answer for what I’m going to hate giving up the most, but I know already that that answer is “smoking.” I’ve quit at least a half a dozen times, with various degrees of success, and none of those degrees being 100%. I always relapse, at some point. (Until 2017. Now I’ve got even more motivation to do it. )

But a non-smoking answer would be sodium. I pour gallons of salt on freaking everything.
