When Your Number's Up

When your number's up there's really not a damn thing you can do about it. When it's your time to go, you are most definitely going, whether or not you have packed a bag, booked a room, got right with God , succeeded in spending your child's inheritance voted in the primary, brushed your teeth, changed your underwear, checked your portfolio, raked the leaves, or anything at all. For all of our trying to be in control, ultimately, in regard to mortality, we have no control whatsoever. You can't request a late checkout, either. Live in light of that. And strive to travel light.
