I was asked last week what the meaning of life was.
The first idea for a response was to spit out the ‘right’ answer according to the catechism as far as it is recorded in my memory : “to glorify God and enjoy him forever”. But it doesn’t seem right to give someone a pre-package un-processed citation of someone else’s pithy nutshell.
I am going to have to think of my own way to put it.
There are two other “right answers” that come to mind” – one is from “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” where they discover that the answer to “life, the universe and everything” is 42.
Good to know.
The last “right answer” that came to mind was this wee bit of comedy monologue from Fawlty Towers –
“Schum! What was that? That was your life, mate. Oh, that was quick; do I get another? Sorry, mate, that’s your lot…”
So, now that I am finished the burpee challenge, I can turn my attention to the meaning of life.
Assuming they are not the same thing 😉
