"I have measured out my life in coffee spoons." -T.S. Eliot
While satisfying my addiction to the common coffee bean this morning, I came across the above quote and found myself reflecting on it's meaning.
On the surface it means T.S. Eliot had a cup of coffee every day. But there could be other - shall we say - interpretations. Let's explore some possibilities...
"I measure my life by telling a lie every day, and I get away with it." -Donald Trump
" I measure each day by kissing a portrait of Trump's ass before putting in my false teeth." -Mitch McConnell
"I've always measured my days with a racist attack against someone." -Stephen Miller
"My metric for measuring each day is to believe anything President Trump has to say." -Mick Mulvaney
"I have measured out my life with a new conspiracy every day." -Mike Hannity
"I use to shower with teenage boys every day, but now I measure my days chasing male Congressional pages." -Jim Jordan
"I have measured my days by trying to tell the truth every day; then Trump came along and I said Fuck it! -Lindsey Graham
One last thing...
Today is World Press Freedom Day - here's an excellent article about the meaning behind this day.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
