30 Days of Twain - Day 8

There are people who strictly deprive themselves of each and every eatable, drinkable and smokable which has in any way acquired a shady reputation. They pay this price for health. And health is all they get for it. How strange it is. It is like paying out your whole fortune for a cow that has gone dry.

My Take - Life's too short.  Yeah, you can have too much of a good thing, but if you're not enjoying life, what's the purpose of extending it?  Life should be full of good coffee, wine, beer, food, and whatever else it is that gives you that warm feeling.  The marathon runners who look malnourished and feel ill when they eat a couple of M&M's don't exactly look like they're going to enjoy those extra months they're tacking onto the end of their life.

We all have an expiration date, we just don't know what it is until it gets here. You can shorten it with bad living, but you can't go past it.
