Received in email this silly/sane bit of thinking for those of a certain age:
WHERE I HAVE AND HAVE NOT BEEN:
I have been in many places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots.
Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.
I’ve also never been in Cognito.
I hear no one recognizes you there.
I have, however, been in Sane.
They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.
I would like to go to Conclusions,
but you have to jump, and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore.
I have been in Doubt.
That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there.
I’ve been in Flexible,
but only when it was very important to stand firm.
Sometimes I’m in Capable,
and I go there more often as I’m getting older.
One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense!
It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!
I know about the Here and Now,
but more and more I think of the Here After …
Several times a day, in fact. I enter a room and think I am here now, but ‘What am I here after?’
