I was at a grocery store yesterday, had dashed in to find the single item I needed to finish making supper. Coming out, a man paused in front of me, smiled and said coyly, "I know what you're doing New Year's Eve." Clutching my bag of bean sprouts, I smiled back and laughed in confusion. Psychic? Or just crazy? How much can a person tell from a bag of bean sprouts? He pointed at me and said, "I do it every year." My eyes widened as I continued to smile. Riiiiight. Then he said, "There's no better way to start a new year, is there?" And that's when I realized I was wearing last year's Resolution Run jacket.
