Life lingers. It hangs around in my head like leftovers in the fridge. What better to do with leftovers than pawn them off on someone else.
According to the Interwebs, Thomas Fuller, a “churchman” from the 1600, is said to be the origin of the quote referenced above. The complete quote is this:
Leftovers in their less visible form are called memories. Stored in the refrigerator of the mind and the cupboard of the heart.
But of course, as my dad enjoyed pointing out, the refrigerator didn’t actually exist in the 1600s, so make of that what you will.
