Reminds me of Halloween: Venom giving out my favorite favor to the tykes => mashed potatoes (by the scoop). Well, they did say "Trick OR Treat". If they don't like it and cry, we could viper cheeks dry and let them slither off to the next door
Last week, an uncle died on a plane on his way home to Tenerife.
Had he died a few hours earlier he would've been in the Netherlands (where he'll be buried) and a few hours later he would be with his wife.
Now, getting his body back from the flying company and back to the Netherlands is quite some trouble, I understood.
It's never really a good time to die, but just before the holidays must be extra painful to his wife.
Not only that, today would be his birthday, which Facebook makes sure you remember.
A couple of people left a message "happy birthday and to many more years!"
Not the time, not the place and way to early (he'd be 76 today)
I wasn't close to him by the way, I've seen him once of twice in the past ten years.
Must be a heck of a month for his wife though
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
