My buddy Ed Van Nuland never fails to impress with his witty one-offs.
A favorite of mine is the term he invented to describe the state of being temporarily short of funds:
This morning, out of the blue, he mentioned being preoccupied with the idea of procrastination.
Procrastination is both an art and a science.
The science is determining the exact moment you must stop procrastinating.
The art is being able to push it beyond that point.
Undoubtedly this will appear one day in auspicious collections of aphorisms and quotations. When it does, let the record show that its author is one Edward Van Nuland.
