Awkward resolutions

Hi, welcome to 2021! You did it.

Trying out this Substack feature called “Discussions.” Feel free to participate if you want.

I generally don’t do New Year’s resolutions. Like, I always want to lose weight or get in shape or whatever, but that requires a whole lifestyle change and, frankly, that’s a lot to ask of yourself right out the gate of a new year.

But about 10 years ago, I resolved to quit eating Hot Pockets after burning my lip on a pepperoni, which turned into a herpes-like wound. I don’t know what’s more embarrassing: telling people you have herpes, or that you burned your lip on a Hot Pocket. I’m happy to say that I haven’t had a Hot Pocket since.

What’s the dumbest/most awkward resolution you’ve made? Did you stick to it?

PS: Despite what I *just* said about not doing resolutions, I really want to learn how to skateboard this year.
