My son years ago while he was in college, came up with an interesting idea each year just before the new year came in.
He and his friends got a big box and filled it with slips of paper of things that happened to them each year that sucked.
This year there is a lot to add to the SUCK Box. Friends that are facing terminal illness. My mom’s health goes in the Suck Box. Diverticulitis and Pneumonia have sapped her strength and health.
Rich’s cancer. THAT goes in the Suck Box. Those are the major things, because if there is no good health, what do we have?
So, you fill the Suck Box with shitty things that have happened all year long. Then you fill the Suck Box with fireworks and then set the whole works on fire and let ‘er blow up.
The year my son did it, he sent it out on Lake Michigan and it exploded in a miraculous display.
Mine will probably just fizz and burn out as I have no fireworks.
