I love extrapolations and projections, so based on this past week, I'm getting ready for a great 2012.
Even though this was a holiday shortened trading week, I definitely got my fill of thrills.
I'm not exactly certain how I should categorize the kidney stone that helped to welcome in the New Year. I guess that not all thrills are positive ones, but at the very least it didn't cause me to miss anything other than some pain free stretches of time. It also seemed odd sitting in my usual perch on the La-Z-Boy without being able to extend the leg rests.
At that point, it's just a chair, so what's the point of a La-Z-Boy?
The unexpected probing was also an unwanted thrill, but this time the prober did not at all look like Woody Allen and had no sense of humor about him.
Slam, bam, than you man and that was it. No dinner, no drinks and certainly no conversation.
What I found somewhat unusual was not paying in cash to have my asets handled so unemotionally.
Sort of like the relationship with your stockbroker.
I suppose that the kidney stone is something that I'd prefer not to extrapolate. The thought of giving birth to a 7 pound bundle of crystal by years' end isn't as appealing as it may sound.
But how could you not love a week when inserted between every verbal comma was mention of the Hungarian currency, the Forint? With all of the discussion of how trivial the Greek economy is in the big picture, imagine where Hungary sits.
