a non-songbird squacks

In Case You Asked

My advice?

Live like there’s no tomorrow!

Yes!

But, umm, you know, don’t spend all your money because there might actually be a tomorrow. So…

Live like you’re broke and there’s no tomorrow!

Ah, but, also, don’t stay out too late. If there’s a tomorrow, you’ll still have to go to school or work. You don’t want to be dragging all day.

So, live like – oh, wait! Stay hydrated too! Just in case.

And, uh, don’t do anything too crazy or mean or irrevocable. If there’s a tomorrow, and, really, there probably will be, things could get pretty awkward.

Oh, and don’t break the law! No need to spend a bunch of potential tomorrows in jail.

Right. Well.

My advice?

Live like you’re broke and you value sleep and nutrition and the law and the feelings of others and like there’s no tomorrow!*
