CHAPTER FIFTY : PARTY TIME !
Sorry to bother you with a spoof question, but if I want to change your mind off things, I really need to ask it !
So, what's your favourite month ?
I'd bet my head January doesn't win general approval.Even worse, I guess it brings up the rear !
No surprise ! January is a dreary month : the weather is dull and the sky is grey. Xmas festive season is just a memory of bygone days, and Spring seems lightyears ahead of us. To crown it all, TV figureheads( you know I happen to speak bluntly so I think they can't be called
"newscasters", can they ?) all round the clock utter a stream of disasters to entice us to give in to gloom and doom.
Doom-watch is their business !
So, what's left ? A fat belly ( New Year binge is sprawling cheekily around our waists) and a flat purse ( Xmas spending spree is an awfully greedy money sucker).
Depressing, isn't it ? Feel like burying your head in the pillows and wallowing in your misery ?
HEY YOU,STOP WHINING ! BE PERKY ! TIME IS ON YOUR SIDE !
Even if it is not party everyday, in January there are plenty of opportunities to let yourself go and have a whale of time !
Ok, you din't get the bean, but the frangipane Twelfth Night cake was delicious, wasn't it ?
It was " Clean off your desk Day ".Have you skipped it ? Well,it's never too late to do the right thing. You can celebrate that day a couple of weeks later. Fight back the flood on your desk. Don't wear a frown ! Purging the paper can be fun ! You can play trashcan paper toss game. Don't tear old paperwork, junk mail and memos ! Crumple them up instead and count how many times you can make it in your trashcan ! Maybe you'll discover your inner NBA basketball player. Ready, steady,go !!
It was Hugging Day ! I hope you haven't dared to overlook it ! A comforting cuddle to those you care about is priceless.So, as soon as you have read my post , turn off your computer and make up for lost time ! Nobody around ? Never mind ! Hug yourself ! Sure, it will cheer you up, at least it will warm you up !
It was Compliments Day . I guess some of you knew about it because I got plenty of sweet words and praises on email@example.com

Put your thinking caps on and ponder about the meaning of that day !
