No Meteors Here, Just Tsunamis of Happiness and Pizza

A funny thing happened on the way to the apocalypse. There I was goofing off one morning at my favorite bakery when an astrophysicist looked my way.

And this is what he said: “Oh people say we’re watching the meteor hurtling toward earth from our base in Antarctica.” And I say, “And is it?”

“No,” says he. And I’m like, “so it’s not going to hit Earth?” And he’s like, “there is no meteor.” (leaving off the dufus part)

So despite the anti-clamatic non-climax of life as we know it, life continues on the way it should, merrily, doing what makes me happy with some of those things in moderation, and keeping in touch with friends, family, and strangers appreciating life’s little synchronicities that happen when you connect the dots as I am wont to do.

(Did you ever notice how the word wont implies doing and won’t implies not doing?)

What I’d be doing if a meteor were about to hit Earth. Pretty much the same thing I’d be doing every day – hanging with friends, couch surfers, strangers, enjoying life. Living fat, dying young.

  1. Found your site when googling for unclaimed property. I think it was a 2005 or 2007 posting. The links are now outdated (return a error code 404), but your advice and the discussion following it are still valuable and still found by google. So . . . if you are up for posting an addendum, many people would find it valuable.
