This will be one of the shortest—or less lengthy, if you will, of my rants on Word Press. This quote was on the front of a card I received, unbidden, from a company called Neptune, giving me the opportunity to complete a form and submit it to be included in a drawing for a prepaid cremation and information on obtaining a space in our National Cemetery based on my veteran status. I couldn’t help but speculate, considering the extent to which our government is delving into our private affairs, on whether they know something related to my health that I don’t know, some ort of information to which I am not privy.
No, that’s not a typo—I didn’t mean to say some sort of information. Ort is a real word and properly used in that sentence.
I declined Neptune’s offer to participate in the drawing but I kept the card with the quote—I found it pithy, proper and provocative and decided to share it with any wayfarer that may pass this way—please read and heed!
“Yesterday is history,
tomorrow is a mystery
and today is a gift;
that’s why they call it the present.”
Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962)
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
