468. the art of the new year resolution

benny said, i can’t seem to ever keep my new year’s resolution.
andy said, that’s because you come at it all wrong. there are two things you must do for a resolution to work. first, make a resolution about stuff you have half a chance of keeping. like last year, i made a resolution to never drink milk with a dill pickle.
benny thought for a moment.
then he said, i see what you’re sayin’.
then he thought some more and said, i know, this year i’ll never wear a set of my wife’s under garments that don’t match.
then andy said, and the second thing is sometimes it's better to just say you'll lose ten pounds or something. in your case, this would be such a year.
