GRIN # 342
Ah, New Year’s Eve or, as Jerry and I like to call it, Amateur Night.
It’s when all the amateur drinkers go out, drive and get DUIs.
People, when the po-po tells you they’re gonna be out, believe it.
New York: A 12,000 pound ball made of 2,500 Waterford crystals will drop in Times Square. Unfortunately, due to the snow they haven’t had trash pick-up in a week, so bring nose clips. Eww.
Atlanta: A Peach
Madison, WI: A giant cheese wedge (what else?).
Raleigh: We drop a 1,250-pound copper and metal acorn in the “City of Oaks.”
Mt. Olive: A giant illuminated pickle drops at 7 p.m.
Kure Beach: A beach ball
Clay County: A possum (eww, again).
And, finally, in the town of Eastover, NC, a 3-foot , 30-pound flea will descend at midnight. Constructed from fabric and wood by the town’s mayor, the flea is a memento of a few decades ago when the town was known mainly for its terrible flea infestation.
I’m thinking maybe Eastover needs a good PR person.
Be safe, ya’ll!!
