The Mystery of Life

I wish that life was as easily explained as that great philosopher of the comic strips, Charlie Brown, once deduced that it was.

Lucy is saying to him, "Life is a mystery Charlie Brown…Do you know the answer?" Charlie Brown answered, "Be kind. Don't smoke. Be prompt. Smile a lot. Eat sensibly. Avoid cavities and mark you ballot carefully…Avoid too much sun. Send overseas packages early. Love all creatures above and below. Insure your belongings and try to keep the ball low…" Before he can get out another platitude, Lucy interrupts: "Hold real still," she says, "because I am going to hit you a very sharp blow upon the nose!"
