Enter 2009

[Inside a dark cavern, echoes of eerie voices]

2008:  Hey hey, look, I have a joke

Me:  2008, I'm really sick of you and your jokes.

2008:  Listen, listen!  What's the difference between 2007 and 2008?

2007:  Huh?

Me:  I don't know, what's the difference between 2007 and 2008?

2008:  A YEAR!  AHAHAHA lololoilolo

Me:  I hate you so much...

2007:  That was actually funny lol.

Me:  peas in a pod, so it follows that I hate you too.

2009:  Listen, you can't really blame 2008 for anything.

Me:  And why not?  He brought little good.  I mean, look at him.

2008:  Hey hey, what's the difference between 2007 and 2009?!

Me:  Let me guess, two years?

2008:  Nothing, they're both ODD!  AHHAHAHAHAAH lololol

2007: AHAHAHAHAHA *slaps 2008 in the back*

Me:  Someone shut them the [bleep] up or I will enter the Guinness Book of World Records for being first person to murder a year.

2009:  You can't murder a year Bojacob.


Me:  Oh great, I'm glad you joined the circus too with these other clowns.

2009:  Listen, let's walk.

Me:  *sigh* fine.

2008:  Hey, where are you guys going?  Don't leave me here!

Me:  What?  Aren't you done causing pain?

2008:  I'm not done yet!  I still have time!  Don't go!  I'll stop joking!

2007:  Come on 2008, let's go.

2009:  You can't murder a year Bojacob, you either put it behind you, or shackle it to your leg and have it slow you down.

Me:  It's not really easy to forget things, 2009.

2009:  What's stopping you from letting go?  Look forward, not backwards.  Things happen, and the best time to forget about it is now.

2008:  What are you talking about?!  Look man, I'm sorry about whatever happened but-

Me:  You're history 2008.  Good bye.

2008:  Wait!  Hah, you really think you can just forget me at will?  You can't forget me! 

[covers ears and walks away]

2008:  The pain is your fault!  They were YOUR choices!  YOURS!  You only have YOURSELF to blame!  YOU HEAR ME?!

Me:  Shut up, just shut up!

2008:  YOU did this to yourself!  YOU!  *loud laughter*

[Maniacal laughter fades away as I and 2009 run far off into the distance]

[stopping and breathing hard]

Me:  Damn it...

2009:  Not very easy, is it.

Me:  No.  It's not.  Time will fix this, though, yeah?

2009:  That's the spirit.

[walking quietly in a vast empty space with a clear blue sky]

Me:  A clear mind, free of worry and pain.

2009:  And why not?  Whatever happened is in the past.

Me:  Yeah...

[walking in silence]

Me:  Hey 2009?

2009:  Hmm?

Me:  Will there be anything life-changing this year?

2009:  What do you mean?

Me:  Well, I mean, you know... road forks ..stuff, come on, you know what I mean.

2009:  Do you want your life to change?

Me:  Kind of, I guess.

2009:  Nothing will happen unless you set the wheels in motion.  Simply start it up, and a string of events will follow.

Me:  Wise and deep, yet very unhelpful.

2009:  You just defined the word "wisdom."

Me:  I mean, people turned the wrong wheels once and it resulted in quite some angst.

2009:  It's pretty complex, but you simply have to turn the correct wheels.  The ones that actually make some logical sense.  Don't let emotions do that for you.

Me:  Give me a clear yes/no answer. 

2009:  It's for you to decide, Bojacob, not me.

Me:  Figures...

2009:  I'm sorry.

[Walking quietly again]

2009:  Do you hate me yet?

Me:  Just a little, but we've only just started yeah?

2009:  Do you want to hear a joke?

Me:  Oh God...

2009:  Really, you might like it.

Me:  Fine, hit me.

2009:  How did 2004 jump the fence?

Me:  You're kidding me...

2009:  Indulge me.

Me:  Fine, how did 2004 jump the fence?

2009:  It was a leap year.

Me:  .....

2009:  And why did 2004 jump the fence?

Me:  ....?

2009:  Afraid the leap years might take a-fence!

Me: ..ahem

2009:  You smiled :)

Me:  I did not!

2009:  You're still smiling.

Me:  I'm not!  Your vision is curved or something.

2009:  Years have no eye-

Me:  2009, I'll kill you.

2009:  Ok, ok.  :)

[long silence]

Me:  Ok, so I smiled

2009:  I know.

Me:  Well, don't make a big deal out of it.

2009:  Starting the year with a smile.  That counts for something, Bojacob.

Me:  You know, I think this will be a good year :)

2009:  Only if you make it so.

Me:  I will.  I promise that I will.

2009:  Then let us begin!  Where do we start?

Me:  We find your so called "wheel of fate."  Hmm...

[Eyes his bass guitar]

2009:  Uh, I wouldn't exactly call that a "wheel of fate"

Me:  It's a wheel of stfu.  Now, let's hit it!


Goodbye 2008.

Hello 2009!

We make our own frikkin fate here!  No reason for the past to mess with OUR minds!

Happy new year everyone :)  Chins up, and make this one your best!
