Mort, Al and Tim

"Be careful!"
"Don't be silly!"
"Just who do you think you are!"

Intimidations of immortality from
recollections of early childhood.

Note: The last two lines are my variation on Wordsworths ode on "Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood." For Wordsworth, childhood was full of a glory hinting at immortality. For most of us, childhood is when parents and friends remind us (helpfully) that we might grow up to be somebody (or some body) if we ever realize that we don't quite exist yet.
