Looking back

That’s what we tend to do on this day. I’ll speak for everyone here because why not? Looking back just a few minutes, I knew as soon as the plastic ripped that it was a mistake to crack open the bag of mini turtles so early in the day, but I popped one in my mouth anyway and bit down. This is how a year comes to a smashing end. A swallowing of chocolate, chopped nuts (ouch!), and a caramel centre, though when you come right down to it, it’s impossible to swallow the centre without becoming the centre, the chopped nuts (ouch!), and the chocolate, but that's not all, nor does it necessarily follow. The thing is, the uvula gives it all a little pat like everything will be ok, it’s got your back, and for a moment you believe it.
