Midnight 2014

My New Years eve was spent with her in my arms, laying in a hammock beneath a palm tree in just swim shorts and a towel. Warm, relaxed and counting my blessings, I couldn’t remember the last time I had felt so satisfied with the previous year or so excited about the one to come.

Actually…

That was 10pm

At 11:57pm I was in bed asleep, she tapped me on the shoulder and pointed to her watch, wanting to go out onto the balcony and watch the fireworks to see the new year in. I do not recall this. Apparently I nodded at her, murmured a word that sounded like “bluhmur” and rolled over back to sleep.

Not every moment can be like the movies.
