Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.

December 31. “It’s the Final Countdown…Button, are you awake?”

“Who sang that song?”

“You mean to say you’ve heard that song? If I remember right, it was a song sung by an 80’s band called Europe. This was the group’s hit song.”

“And who’s doing the final countdown to bidding goodbye to 2010 and welcoming 2011?”

“We’ll do it together. Let’s start. There’s just 10 seconds left.”

“10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and 0.”

“How does this whole exercise make you feel, Button? Does it make you sad, nostalgic or happy?”

“I’d say happy because you’ve drilled it inside my head that one must be optimistic about most things.”

“That’s nice. Happy New Year, Button.”

“Happy New Year. And thank you for everything.”
