Today’s Meaningless Benediction

July 1, 2007

Go, eat your burrito with gladness, and drink your Negro Modelo with a joyful heart, for it is now that God favors what you do. Always be clothed in white, and always anoint your head with oil. Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun— all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun. Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.

    It was awesome. Except that now I feel I have to go out and get a wife. That could get awkward. But I’ll just blame iPete.
