Memento Mori

Walking back to my office with a friend after lunch yesterday, I noticed a banner urging members of the campus community to get DNA swabbed for a bone marrow registry, which I thought was pretty cool. Then I noticed a blurb on the banner that said, “Ages 15-44!”, which I guess (due to the exclamation point) was meant to be wide ranging and inclusive.

Of course, I’m 49. I turned to my friend and said, “Nothing like being told you aren’t even valuable for spare parts anymore.”
