Here’s a New Year’s Resolution That Will Really, Um, Stick

If you have to make one, here's how.

Dear GiGi,

It’s the new year, and I’m trying to come up with my new year’s resolutions but having a hard time deciding on something I can really stick to. Did you make any this year and how do you plan to stick to them?!

Happy New Year!

Dear Phil,

What in Dog’s name is a resolution, and why would I want it to stick to me?? The last time I got stuck to something it took three baths and my owner saying words she uses only for people who cut us off in traffic.

I think if you want to get stuck to something, Phil, you should consider wrapping yourself in double-stick tape and running as fast as you can into the side of an ice cream truck (or if you’re a hipster, a pop-up, artisanal, fusion, gluten-free, food truck).

It might hurt, but if you hit it just right you’ll stick and can ride that sucker until free treats fall off and — Viola! — a happy new year!!

Sloppy Kisses!
