Why I don’t believe the world is ending on 12.21.12 or anytime soon:
-Because my library books are due that day. I couldn’t be so lucky as the world to end that day.
-Because my father said only two things are guaranteed death and taxes – and the latter are going off the fiscal cliff a week or so later or at least are not due to April 15.
-Because every Jewish holiday comes down to this classic Alan Ladd quip: “They tried to kill us. We survived. Let’s eat.” We are still hungry – the world can’t end until we are all fed.
-Because on my 30 birthday (a few years ago!) a psychic took my drunken palm and told me I’d live to be at least 86. I believe this Times Square psychic more than the Mayans.
-Lastly, the world will not end on 12.21.12 because I still need to dance at my son’s and daughter’s weddings and they are only 12 and 7, because I still need to write my adult novel, because I still need to see Rome and Jerusalem and the Grand Tetons. And because I have miles to go before I sleep. And miles to go before I sleep.
Your thoughts on 12.21.12??
