Wildlife cannot be stockpiled or everybody countdown to tension Happy new year Bob Greene human interest not to be the bearer of bad tidings but boy Are you in for a letdown. On new years eve. If you re planning to make this new year s the transcendent experience of a lifetime simply because 1999 will become 2000 As Midnight hits then you re setting yourself up for a fall. The new year s eve syndrome itself is one of the few infallible principles in life a i.e., if you go into something planning for it to be great and memorable it won t. Tile new year s eve syndrome is based on the realization that the truly wonderful things in life Are Seldom scheduled a the moments that stay with you Are the ones that Blindside you that Delight you by Surprise. That s Why new year s eve is so often a Flop. Multiply that Flop Hood by about 1,000 a that s How Large the Flop looms on this coming millennial new years eve. There s not a Way in the world that it can be As Fine As you re hoping for it to be it will doubtless fade into Bland and vague memory once the Dawn of Jan. I comes unless you Are say planning to ask someone to marry you As the clock strikes 12. And even if you be got that in mind the person can always say no a or pretend not to have heard the question. What makes this particular new year s eve so potentially dismal is All the psychological pressure being put on people to make it spectacular of it s not a once in a Century bundle of ecstasy a or so the Assumption seems to be a then it must be considered a total failure. This is the two minute Drill of a lifetime a if you Don t win this one if you Don t win this night then you re a loser. Which is Why All the staggeringly expensive package deals at hotels and restaurants Are being thrust at people. It s a Shakedown of expectations an extortion of the heart pay up or you will forever regret that you did t do everything you could to make this night the Best of your time on Earth. Recently i received a Call from a booking agent asking if i would consider being a speaker on a luxurious cruise line s Quot millennial the passengers would be spending a lot of Money to sail around much of the world on this elegant Ocean liner one of the things they would be getting for their Cash was nonstop entertainment Day and night. Music shows lectures. Would i speak on the ship i asked for the details. The woman from the booking Agency said Quot Well you would Board the ship on dec. 27 in mutter mumble mutter and we would drop you off on Jan. 3 in mutter mumble mutter a her voice dropped and slurred when she named the places where i would get on and get off the boat. I asked her to repeat what she had said. It turned out that two Days after Christmas i would be expected to Board the ship in. Buenos Aires. And on Jan. 3, to get off in some Little port town on the coast of Brazil while the Happy travellers continued their cruise. Right. With All the talk about How y2k problems Are going to bring much of the world to a standstill on Jan. I this is where i want to be As the Century turns somewhere in the water off the Shore of Argentina. And then As the Uncertain new year begins to be let off the ship in some Remote brazilian seaport with a Hearty laughing wave from the Crew and a Quot Good Luck getting that s not the reason i m not going to do it though. On paper a new year s like that sounds All right even pretty interesting. But in real life As opposed to on paper it would consist of being in the midst of the highest Echelon of the new year s eve syndrome a All those people on that ship who had spent All that Money to make this new year s eve better than any other with their bought and paid for need for pleasure and nonstop gratification at a ceaseless Peak. And there i am part of the daily diversion for which they be plunked Down their Cash. Fidgeting at a lectern in the ships theater looking out into their demanding eyes saying to them a huh Are there any questions Quot no i think i la be on dry land on new years eve. I have weighed All the possibilities a All the false Hopes raised by the historic occasion All the potential disappointments inherent in the night a and i have decided that at the stroke of Midnight i will be engaged in the most thrilling and fulfilling activity i can come up with proofreading.
