Thing To Do Today: be human.

'What does it mean to be human?'

Good heavens! Er...well...

...oh look, be reasonable, no one could possibly answer such a difficult question. I mean, I'm only...human.

Yes, yes, I accept that wanting to know the answer to impossible questions is only human, too, but...

'Well, how about this one, then: if being only human means being fallible, then why does your human capital describe the stuff at which you're rather good?'

...oh goodness...um...sorry. No. I really haven't a clue about that one, either...

No. Totally baffled on that one, too.

Sorry!


Thing To Do Today: be human. (Though that's no excuse not to observe people's human rights, okay?) This word comes from the Greek homō, which means man.
