Brain: So, what’s the New Years Resolution this year?
Heart: Read more books.
Brain: Right, that was the resolution last year. We definitely accomplished that. Let’s try something harder.
Heart: Read 300 books.
Brain: Um, that seems excessive. What about learning a new language, or keeping the sock drawer organized?
Brain: You know, I think that was our resolution two years ago too.
Brain: And probably the year before that. And the year before that. Heck, have we EVER had a different resolution?
Heart: Read all the books.
…Well, I tried.
