All Of The Selves We Have Ever Been
The times we are living in are indescribable.
I think of the words of Yogi Berra who said, “We’re lost, but we’re making good time.”
As I travel along long the road adrift and at high speed, I try to distract myself by pondering other puzzling questions. Ride along with me for a minute…
I know I am not alone in wondering, is it butt naked or buck naked?
And do you nip it in the bud? Or nip it in the butt? I guess if depends on whether you or a florist or a physician. While we’re there, is it Lyme Disease or Lime Disease?
Arthritis? Or Arthur Itis? Or maybe Arthur Itis has arthritis?
Pneumonia or the ammonia?
Abdominal pain or abominable pain? Ooh! Terrible to have both.
Acute angina or a cute vagina? Gotta get that right. Might leave folks wondering if you know which end is up.
Moving on from bodily ailments, is it acorn or eggcorn?
Happy New Year or Happy You Near?
Better Nate than lever? Or better late than never? Might matter to Nate.
I saw you light a fire or I saw you fight a liar? Hmm. Timely.
Is it statute of limitations or a statue of limitations?
I am going with statue of limitations. And they are coming down.
We’ve been lost, but we’re making good time.
