Friday Wisdom – New Year

As required, today I am sharing everything I know about a new year.

I was at a New Year’s Eve party where this guy didn’t let is left foot touch the ground. He say he wanted to start the new year on the right foot.

Last New Year’s Eve, we went to see some fireworks – it was a blast.

New Year’s lesson: Many things can be preserved in alcohol. Dignity isn’t one of them.

My New Year resolution: Stop talking to people who ask me about my New Year’s resolutions.

My blessing for you this year: May all your troubles last as long as a New Year’s resolution.

2022 was such a blur – I think my resolution was too low.

I think partying in Times Square is overrated, I mean every year they drop the ball.

A friend of mine got out a loaf of bread on New Year’s Eve. He said he wanted to make a toast.

I resolve to read more next year. Do subtitles on the TV count?

New Year? What was wrong with the old one?

I know a lady who put her new calendar in the freezer. She wanted to start the new year in a cool way.

Never go jogging on New Year’s Eve – the ice will just bounce out of your drink.

I was thinking of stopping a few bad habits of mine, but then I remembered that no one likes a quitter.

Still waiting for my wife to tell me what my New Year’s resolutions are.

I’m staying up till midnight this year. Not to see the new year in, but to make sure the old one leaves.

Last year I did resolve to lose 20 pounds. Only 30 more to go!

Well, that’s it, no more jokes until next year.

  8. Spot on! My oldest daughter experienced New Year’s Eve in Times Square once. That was enough. Me? Never. I’ll spend a nice quiet, calm NYE at home, if I can stay awake long enough to welcome in the new year. Happy New Year to you and yours, Andrew! And may 2023 bring you a whole new batch of good jokes. πŸ™‚
