Bill Holm’s friend used to say Eat dessert first; life is short and uncertain. I say Amen to that, brother. But saying and doing are two different postures. We were raised to get the work done first and then and only then go out to play. Its hard to tell, now so many years later, if that made us into better adults or not. I could poll some of my old peers but their abbreviated lives are sleeping beneath black granite etched with a name, two dates, and maudlin epitaphs like So We Beat On, Boats Against the Current. Something tells me if those dead could come back to warn they’d cry Eat your pie first, sport!
