Well, tomorrow's New Year's Day, and according to tradition I'll be cooking
up an enormous steaming pot of black-eyed peas. You see, tradition has it
that each black-eyed pea that you eat represents a dollar that you'll receive
in the new year. So, y'know, I figure that I'm gonna eat at least nine thousand
seven hundred 'n fifty-two peas, which means the Brak-man will be livin'
large in ninety-eight! But, actually, you know what, I've been trying this
whole black-eyed pea thing for about fourteen years in a row, and I still
don't even have one red cent! I musta eaten sixty thousand peas last year,
and did I make that much? Nooo, boy. And the more I think about it, all those
peas lookin' at me with their black eyes while I'm eatin' 'em, uuuggghhh!
Boy! Just kinda creeps me out. Raaagh! Quit lookin' at me, peas! Yer gonna
get eaten anyway! Y'better quit lookin'! Bbbrrr. Maybe I won't do this whole
black-eyed pea thing after all.
