This New Years Eve be careful.

This post is for the men who read the field's blog (especially you single ones). I am going to play dear Abby for just a minute and hip you to some things that you should know during this time of year.


OK, here is the deal; if you are in a relationship with a female, or if you are married to someone you want to stay married to, you might want to consider the following: Make sure that you are with your significant other when that clock strikes 12:01 AM this New Year. Not 12:05, not 12:10, but 12:01 AM. There is no time of year more important to a woman in terms of having you there with her than New Years Eve, and no time on the clock will be as important as 12:01 AM on January 1st. Not Valentines Day, not Christmas, not even her own birthday. New Years Eve; get it? Christmas is for family, so she won't mind you being away from her with your family, because more than likely she wants to be with hers as well. Valentines? Forget about it, you can always send her flowers. And believe it or not, birthdays are not going to be such a big deal to your significant other either. Birthdays remind her that she is getting older, and after thirty that's not a good thing for any of us.



All you "players" (you know who you are) out there please pay attention, because the field is trying to save you some grief. Back in the day when the field was still single, he lived in a central time zone area, and had a significant other on the East Coast. This was perfect, because the field could call his East Coast par amour at 11:01 central time, spend about a half an hour on the phone and then hook up with his central time zone love interest in time for 12:01 AM her time. The next year my long distance East Coast love interest insisted that we spend New Years Eve together or else. Of course the field couldn't' deliver, and, well, the rest as they say is history. Now fellows I would not recommend you trying this at home. Honesty is always the best policy. And just in case Mrs. Field is reading this post, as Bernie Mac says; this stuff happened "a long long time ago". But I tell this story to make a point. You players out there like to play games during the holiday seasons, but this time of year is different. This time of year timing is important, because this holiday is all about time. The passing of it, and the welcoming of the future and what it has to offer.


I can't explain why New Years Eve is so important to a woman, but believe me, it is. Maybe it's what it represents. The start of something new, and the celebration of things to come. Women are far more optimistic than men, and I think that might have something to do with it. We think the new year will bring more of the same, while the women among us see great possibilities and potential. This might be why they want us there to share this particular moment with them, because of what it represents.


So fellows, if you care about the one you are with, be there for New Years Eve. If you don't care about the one you are with, there is an easy way to end it. Just find yourself somewhere else when that clock strikes 12:01, and I guarantee you that it will be your last New Years Eve together.


Now go on and make your reservations.

My New Year's day is the Solar New Year, December 25th; the day the Sun starts north again (or the earth tilts southward again).

But, Field sir, I do feel, er, comprehend that which you recommend; I was with my lovely wife at 12:01 A.M. for the beginning of the new solar year.

For me, the calendar new year is an obfuscation.

Was she fine?

field, you know you're right. that paragraph beginning with "I can't explain..." is soo-o-o-o true. Give yourself much credit for the insight. You explained it very well. BTW, I've been w/o a male companion for, oh, how many New Year's eves now. But I'm older now, so it's old hat now, but what you said is correct.

Feeling You at the Bottom of the Map (Florida).

"Was she fine?" Yes she was :)

Thanks anon. 10:50 AM. I have mad love for Florida too.

Field, you're a beast, man (that's a good thing). Happy new years to you and yours.

Lisa said...

And the church (with all the women on the front pew, standing, clapping and shouting) said, "Amen!"

THE MOST insightful piece you've done this year!!! (LOL!)

Have a great new year - (I'm sure you will with such depth and understanding). :-)

The Christian Progressive Liberal said...

Field, New Year's represents New Starts, New Beginnings, New EVERYTHING. And if homeboy is THE ONE, New Year's symbolizes we're' starting off NEW, TOGETHER.

Good advice for the playas - whether or not they pay attention to it is another matter. LOL, and Happy New Year!

WildMagnolia said...

FN, you're absolutely right on this one brotha. Fellas, take heed!

I am looking forward to another year of you bloggin' yo brains out!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

I don't know something still ain't right about it. I guess I have an issue with the "deceitful womanizing - man sharing coercing part of it. Thanks, but no thank you. Naughty field, naughty.

field negro said...

la~msviswan, that was a long long long time ago.

lisa, lawd knows i try :)

Southern Girl said...

Field,

Anyway, I still love your blog.

Happy New Year from New Orleans, Louisiana!!!!!

Happy and Safe New Years, Field.

Happy New Year Field

It is not necessarily true for all women that we get upset with our husbands if they are not with us to bring in the New Year. It is happening for me this year, it happened twice before, and the marriage survived. Sh*t happens beyond our control sometimes.

rikyrah said...

I hate New Year's Eve. Always have.

But, I'll wish everyone a Happy New Year.

And, for tonight, wherever you are STAY THERE!

You might be the most sober person on the road...

But, I believe you tempt fate driving New Year's Eve. Don't tempt fate and become a statistic.

ms-teacher said...

New Year's Eve is extremely important to me as it's when my husband proposed to me twenty two years ago. You are dead on about it being important to women.

Hope the players out there listen to you, field!

ms-teacher said...

And, Happy New Years to you and your :)

shy giraffe said...

ahh the man has spoken...lol.
have a great year, both to you and your loves one.

=:O)

Woozie said...

Well Hitch Negro, an interesting post. And no Grammar Jewry! I'm impressed.

Good advice, Field, cause crying when it's too late is a lonely and sorry enterprise.

I was hugging my wife and daughters, with the a half-moon rise over the bay and watching fireworks when the clock struck 2008, preceded by pizza and followed by ice cream sundaes. Fourth year in a row like this.

I guess that, from some perspectives such as this, things are quite so very bad as they often seem.

Christopher Chambers said...

It's the whole "alone on New Years" thing. They want to be kissed and dance and have $70 per person (not couple) spent on them for a lame party or crappy dinner.

By the way, big ups for 07, best wishes for 08, and today SUCKS BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO MANY DAMN BOWL GAMES WITH STUPID CORPORATE FUCKING NAMES AND I REFUSE TO EVER WATCH COLLEGE FOOTBALL AGAIN ON NEW YEARS DAY!!!

field negro said...

Thank you great grammer leader we is trying suh :)

Thanks chris,blinders off,southern girl, shy giraffe, and ms.teacher.

rikyrah, you are just a New Year scrooge:)

Francis, thanks for sharing that my man. I felt like I was in Brazil with you.

Chris, congrats to your "skins"! Hopefully we will get you guys next year.

BTW, co-sign with you about the bowl games. Ladies, send your nasty e-mails to chris over at Nat Turner's Revenge.
