It’s that time of year again, when everybody makes their predictions for the coming year. Everything from sane and rational expectations to outlandish foretellings and dire warnings of things that will never come true. For instance, I read the other day that 2013 will be the year aliens land on the Earth and we will discover life on Mars. Yeah, right!
The good news is, I won’t look too peculiar making a few predictions of my own. Keep in mind that I do not have a crystal ball and wouldn’t know what to do with one if I did. Okay, here goes.
I predict 2013 will have 365 days (Approximately – the time discrepancy which necessitates the occurrence of leap year not withstanding).
I also predict the weather across the country will be generally cooler at the beginning of the year, followed by a warming trend throughout the summer months – even downright hot in some areas. Then, with fall, temperatures will moderate, eventually turning colder toward the end of the year. And then I predict some moron will blame the variation in weather on global climate change.
I further predict 2013 will see politicians spending more money they don’t have, blaming each other and then trying to figure out ways to have the rest of us pay for their stupidity and insatiable desire to spend.
And I predict that when 2013 is over, 2014 will be ushered in – like clockwork.
Hey, this predicting thing seems pretty easy! I could go on, but I’m fairly sure nobody wants me to. So, I’ll end this blog with one final prediction; next year, about this time, there’ll be a whole lot more of the crazies coming out with their predictions – not at all dissuaded by the fact that none of their previous “enlightened” prophetic statements came about. Except me – I think I have a pretty good shot at all of mine coming true!
Happy New Year!
