We’re all adults here, so we can face facts and tell the truth, right? 2016, which started out with such promise, has quickly devolved into a year many of us would sooner forget. Just the election of Trump is enough to make you want to hibernate for the next four years.
Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren may have said it best of all when asked to give a Christmas message on the Graham Norton Show, which is popular in the United Kingdom. Here’s her take on the year that will soon be history:
“At this time of celebration and togetherness, we have the chance to reflect on the year gone by. And I think we can all agree that 2016 has been a big pile of shit.”
Despite that, Mirren also reminded us that all is not lost as long as we have a nice adult beverage to help us cope:
“So my advice to you is drink responsibly, and be merry. Have a very Happy Christmas.”
I’ll drink to that! Pass the bourbon, please.
