This Pickles cartoon has grandson Nelson talking to Grandpa Earl on the couch. “How much longer do you think you’ll live, Grampa?” inquires Nelson.
“Who knows?” replies Earl. “I could live ten more years, or I could drop dead any minute.”
Nelson looks at Grampa lying still on the couch, his hands folded over his belly. “Would I be able to tell?” asks Nelson.
Who knows how long any of us have to live? We could drop dead at any minute, or we could live for decades more. Carpe Diem – seize this day, and every day.
