As a kid, I thought it was funny.  
Redundant.
“Well, of course you don’t make it out alive…

As an adult, the saying has become a frightening warning.
It is a daily challenge.
Does this matter?  Does that matter?
Is it worth getting upset over a missed train, a bad haircut, a spilled coffee?

I’m really trying not to take my life too seriously, as my father – and that sage coaster – always urged.
