A Wildly Specific Year by Numbers, 2017 Edition.

I pitched below to a clever online website, but was met with rejection.  Then I never managed to pitch it anywhere else.  Anyway, enjoy!

  • 37.9, years of age
  • 14, years married to first husband
  • 3 million+, words checked (according to Grammarly app)
  • 3, films attended in a theater (Gold Class)
  • 3, shots of Jägermeister consumed during husband’s 40th birthday party
  • 2, visits with my sister
  • 7(ish), nights involving karaoke
  • 1, foreign driver’s licensed renewed (with misspelling of surname still in place)
  • 1, concert attended (U2)
  • 1, novel published (The Queen of England: Coronation)
  • Still being tallied, number of episodes of television watched (assumption is 10% increase from 2016)
  • Numerous, new inside jokes started (“Milos take?”)
  • 31, number of friends who attended our Thanksgiving party
  • 100+, uses of new personal catchphrase ‘100% legit’
  • 1, time (nearly) stranded in a foreign country when original airline was barred from entering current country of residence before return flight
  • 1, Great Barrier Reef witnessed
  • 2, dogs almost adopted (an ongoing struggle as a weekly volunteer with a K9 rescue organization)
  • 75, spin classes attended
  • 2, pounds lost overall in the year (*an estimate not based on actual measurement)
  • 1, course ingested containing goat brain at fine dining establishment (goat brain was not disclosed until after consumption)
  • 63, percent optimism for 2018

Hope your 2017 was just as interesting — all the best in 2018!
