New Year = Black Boogers

To welcome the new year, my family decided to set off a Judas’ Belt in front of our house in Laguna at exactly 12 midnight. While it was still exploding, I went to find my dogs and found all of them cowering under the dining table, shivering like mad. Poor dears. Next year, I’ll stuff their ears with cotton balls.

We were supposed to celebrate with our respective friends but since there were five deaths in the family this year, my father made us all stay home and celebrate with the family. I obliged because I was really tired and not in the mood to party it up and get drunk.

I’m pretty sure the air in Manila was ridiculously thick with smoke on New Year’s Day. Breathing in this kind of stuff tends to make you woozy and worse, turn your boogers black. We stayed in Laguna instead to avoid driving while trying to avoid things exploding under the car. I swear whoever thought it was a good idea to set things off on the streets while there are still people driving on it should be shot.

Happy New Year, everyone.
