On Friday night, on my last break at work, I grabbed a funny hat from a table in the festively decorated break room, tossed it on my noggin, and took a silly selfie.
Posting it on my Facebook I wished everyone well and commented that I was glad 2016 was over and I hoped that 2017 would be so much better, personally and creatively.
Among the well wishes in return were a few laughs;
"Damn party animals", from a friend in NoCal.
"You look drunk", from my oldest sister, in SoCal.
and, "did you start partying without US ???? LMAO", from a writer friend in Austin.
I responded this way; "No, our break room at work has a festive look and these different hats laying around on tables. I grabbed one I liked and took a photo during a break last night.
Haven't had a beer in quite a while."
The friend in Austin wasn't having any of it, hee, hee!
"Nice try -- you're a writer, couldn't you concoct a more elaborate story??? LOL"

It has been months, even a few years, since I last wrote any 100 or 200 word stories on either of my blogs, my most famous effort being the 31 chapter opus, Aubrey, that a friend thinks deserves publishing.
My 1st 200 Word Musings, on this blog, was last April:
My 2nd was last July:
So...after a New Year's morning re-write, here goes....
