The Goal in Life

"The goal in life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'WOW -- what a freaking ride!' " - Anonymous

The Epitaph of Young Benjamin Franklin

The body of
B. Franklin, Printer
(Like the Cover of an Old Book
Its Contents torn Out
And Stript of its Lettering and Gilding)
Lies Here, Food for Worms.
But the Work shall not be Lost;
For it will (as he Believ'd) Appear once More
In a New and More Elegant Edition
Revised and Corrected
By the Author.
Amen. So it shall be.

I was at the doctor's office last week for a check-up. The doc said I have the body of a 20 year old and if the 20 year old ever saw what I did to it, he'd probably kill me.
