Commuting days until retirement: 500
Five hundred days to go – I couldn’t let that go by without comment. It’s a sort of backwards anniversary, or anti-anniversary. Let’s call it an antiversary.
So here’s something to celebrate it:
A quincentennially starred antiversary
Needs observance that’s more than just cursory.
Despite notions you’ve got
From my profile shot
I’ve come a long way from the nursery.
My hope from today’s antiversary
That my pension will build to a bursary
Means I cannot start shirking
But must go on working –
For time is a fearsome adversary.
(If you’re a pronunciation freak, I’m sorry about the last line. I was out of rhyme words.)
Congrats on your antiversary, duncommutin! I referred to your review of Will Storr’s book in my latest blogpost, called “homeopathy, anyone?” Thanks again for recommending that one.
Thank you! And it’s gratifying to see that the post struck a chord – it was only a chance TV programme which made me aware that the book was to be published.
