Thing Definitely To Be Tomorrow: frugal.

Oh, to be frugal!

How cleansed we'll be from vain possessions which clog our every view!

How fit from shunning taxis! How charged with vital sparks from fasts unbroken save by roots carved into mermaids' hair and berries sour as sin!

How sweet the world when nourished by our wealth unselfish spent!

Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes! How full of vim and mental clearness we will be...

...tomorrow.

Thing Definitely To Be Tomorrow: frugal. This word comes from the Latin frūgālis, from frūgī, temperate or useful, from frux, fruit.
