Robert Frost once said that he could sum up life in three little words: It goes on.
But that isn’t entirely accurate as most of the people in the world (including Frost) are now dead, so instead I’ve decided that all of life could be summed up in two sentences:
Sometimes it’s shit.
Sometimes it’s the shit.
It’s not as eloquent as Frost, but I think it’s more accurate. It’s also better than my first try at summing up life, which was : If possible, try to get licked by a giraffe.
Alternatively, attacked by an ostrich works too. I’ve done both and they are wonderful things to add to your bucket list. Bring some bactine.
Your turn, fellow insomniacs. Sum up life for me. It’s not like we’re accomplishing anything else tonight.
PS. Seriously. Make friends with the people at the zoo and they’ll let you sneak in and play with the giraffes. They’ll also let you crash a golf cart into a wall. But only once.
