In the comic, “Motley’s Crew” a young man tells his father, “Hey Dad, I just signed up to audit a class in philosophy over at
The father replies, “Whaddaya mean ‘audit’?”
The son replies “When you audit, you get to hang around, but you can’t participate and you don’t get any credit.”
After a moment or two, the father said, “So that’s what’s happening to me…I’m auditing life.”
Funny, but the truth is that no one gets to just audit life.
