Cashier is ringing me up.
“How’s your day?” he asks.
“Good! How’s yours?”
“Happy New Year!”
“Happy New Year! How was your last night?”
“Good. But I’m really looking forward to this year. A fresh start, you know?”
“Yeah. Me, too.” He rings up an item, “Protein bars? What, are you trying to get buff or something?”
I laugh, because I’ve just worked out and I’m standing their in an athletic cut t-shirt.
“Yeah. I’m trying! Trying to *cultivate mass, man!”
I’m not sure he caught the It’s Always Sunny reference, but he laughs.
I’m liking this new year so far. The people of 2014 are nice.
Although I appear to be surrounded by sarcastic comedians. But I could get used to that.
