Yes, one twelfth of this year is already gone.
How many of your New Year's resolutions have you kept?
Hey, let's try something different.
Make a phone call to arrange lunch with someone for Wednesday.
Instead of watching to find out if the groundhog will see his shadow, you can cast your own shadow on the table cloth while you have a conversation with someone. (Yes, table cloth means you should NOT do the cheap lunch.)
Who knows what good will come of it? (and don't say "Only the Shadow knows").
