Don't spend your chickens until he gets you to the other side

I’m not a big fan of that whole Alexander Graham Bell, “When one door closes, another door opens” school of thought. Why wait for one door to close before opening another? Is it not better to open as many doors as possible at the same time? There’s a popular idiom - “When the cat's away, the mice will play”. I don’t know too many cat’s or indeed mice but I would imagine there are plenty of well adjusted mice who just want to relax while the cat's away. Why paint all the mice with the same accusation? Plato was fond of saying “Don't count your chickens before they are hatched”. Why didn’t he say “Don’t spend your wages before you get paid” or “Don’t pay the ferryman until he gets you to the other side”. I think it’s time to give back to the world. Allow me to present my own take on words “If you don’t laugh at life, it will kick you in the head”. Please note, it’s not meant to be taken literally. Don’t worry, If you don’t laugh at life, it’s not actually going to kick you in the head but one day a religion will be based on those few words and a good day it will be too! Bill Y
