Thought for the day

If you’re single, and it crosses your mind to worry that you might die alone and be eaten by Alsatians before anyone finds your decrepit corpse, à la Bridget Jones, remember this …

HALF of all your ‘smug married’* friends will die single, too.

(Phrase borrowed from Bridget.)

And that’s not because of the divorce rate.

You and your dear spouse are unlikely to die at the same moment. One of you will die single, because the other one has already gone, often years and sometimes decades before.

A useful antidote to self-pity, I hope.

 

PS – Happy 3rd Birthday to this neglected blog …
