happy New Year…

what is it that you’re gettin’ at…you keep talkin’ and talkin’ but you make no sense…just a kinda’ senseless babble…the kind your mother used to make ’round the house when she was sweepin’ or cookin’…real cockeyed talk…drove me up the wall…couldn’t stand it…couldn’t stand her…that’s it…figured it out…you’re turnin’ into your mother…soon you’ll be just like her…talkin’ nonsense all the time…it’ll be just like I’m livin’ with your mom…and I remember how she got real crazy ‘fore she passed…real goofy like…talkin’ ’bout how everyone had abandoned her…left her for dry…you see it happenin’ to ya’ now don’t ya’…gradually…little by little you’ll metamorphosize into an old babbling broad who never stops talkin’…it’ll be sheer chaos ’round here and I’ll have to be the one to call the shots…damn it…should’ve seen this comin’…maybe I did…just denied it all these years…and you’re startin’ to put on weight too…gettin’ a little heavy ’round the hips…Jesus…I should just run now…leave ‘fore it gets any messier…kids could take care of ya’…they owe ya’ that…I’d stay but you’re just gonna’ slow me down…I still got energy in my bones…still got some zip…who am I kiddin’…stuck…should’ve never married ya’…should’ve just left when you squeezed out the first one…what a disappointment that kid turned out to be…’member when we thought he was gonna be somethin’…a lawyer or a doctor or a CEO…somethin’ important in America…somethin’ we could hang our hats on…he had to go out and knock up a girl too…like father like son huh…oh well…happy New Year honey…hell…let’s see what it brings…
