Three (almost four) days into 2007, and I am still formalizing my new year's resolutions. As friends have shared their resolutions with me, and I've heard about the most popular resolutions in the news and on the radio, I have to wonder... what kinds of resolutions would plants, animals, or even organs or cells make? Here are some of my ponderings.
* Save Money: Squirrels aren't just stocking up on nuts this, but are cosidering their 401ks and IRAs as important plans for retirement.
* Lose Weight: Blubber-rich sea mammals are looking to tone down this year, what with global warming and all, they really can't argue necessity anymore.
* Pay Off Debt: Cloned plants and animals are endebted to their genetic mother, and many seek to break the cycle by natural reproduction.
* Get a Better Job: The ants of the world are tired of plowing the soil one grain at a time.
* Get Fit: The heart is the hardest working organ in the body, and continues is daily workout regimen in an attempt to get and stay fit.
* Eat Right: Koalas, with their current diet of eucalyptus tree leaves, are seeking to eat a wider array of fruits and vegetables.
* Quit Smoking Now: We might expect this is a mandate from the earth to all the f actories and cars burning fuels.
* Reduce Stress at Work: Bacteria face life-threatening challenges on a daily basis, and resolve to evolve as fast as possible to stay on top of their game.
* Take a Trip: Exotic species around the world await opportunities to take a trip to new locals where they can settle.
* Volunteer to Help Others: The selfish gene has decided a little philanthropy might benefit its ability to pass on genetic material.
* Drink Less Alcohol: The crooked palm tree in my neighbor's yard is vowing to straighten up.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you all can attain your gaols and desires in the new year and beyond.
