I love Spanish axioms, particularly those sayings that transmit a vivid (and mildly distressing) mental picture. The title of this post is one of my favorites: en boca cerrada, no entran moscas, which means “in a closed mouth, no flies will enter.”
This saying describes how I feel about resolutions this year. And Shelle brought the feelings to life, in full color. My New Year’s resolutions rarely have to do with food (I dislike most fast foods. I tend to binge on fruits. Yes, I’m weird… and hot… and very modest ;-). But I’ve been known to overindulge in reading. It is common for me to promise that I will only read X number of books, just to fall face first of the wagon and read twice or thrice that many books… before the year is over.
So, in 2013, I’m not promising a damn thing. I will just live, have sex, um… I mean, love, laugh and read until my eyes pop with delight. And I will drink peach wine and eat dulce de leche cheesecake (I will chew with my mouth closed) while I’m doing it. Yes, I’m bad to the bone. And hot (in case you missed it the first time ;-)
