I’m a Dip

January 1st, 2009 · 7 Comments

All week long, I’ve had this song stuck in my grape…

I’m tryin’ to decide exactly why it’s stuck there. I mean, it is a funny tune. That always helps. But that ain’t it. It could be that it’s because I was jamming along to Robert Earl Keen’s Merry Christmas, From the Family all of last week… and that may be a bit closer. (BTW, thank you, Criplets, for posting that song in your sidebar.) But deep down, I think I know exactly why that tune has buried its claws into that peanut sized brain o mine… my superior communication skills.

Keeping in touch… it’s not what I do. And in the last week, as the New Year roared down on me, I got to thinking about my old Marine buds, and how I’m no longer in touch with them. And this, one of their favorite songs, kept playing in my mind.

Thinking on it, it’s not just Marine buds. I’ve been horrible at keeping touch with many folks. Unfortunately, I’ll probably keep the habit going… it’s been many failed years of swearing that I’ll do better.

So instead of making a resolution pledging to do better (and I will try to do better, but I can’t promise it will work… therefore no resolve), I just want to thank those of you who put up with me and my monster gift of communication skills.

Thanks for doing more than your share…

    Boy, can I ever relate to this…I am the worst. Says the person who promised to send a package to you in the mail six months ago and never quite got around to it (I got as far as sticking it in the padded envelope).

    Hopefully this year we can both do better. And if we can’t, hopefully the peeps who put up with us will still love us in spite of our monster communication foibles.

    Well jeez – if you’d ever just stop talking long enough so somebody could get a word in edgewise!

    😉 Happy New Year, Big Guy…

    Don’t worry. We all forgive you. We shake our heads a lot, but we still forgive you.

    “If you stay ’til breakfast, friend, they’ll want to marry you.” Truer words were never spoken.

    Thanks so much. now I have another dorky song stuck in MY head. :)

    As for keeping in touch with friends from times past–“Do, or do not. There is no try”. Ah, Yoda. Truer words have never been spoken….

    p.s. For the record, I think you do pretty good keeping up with your family. :)
