The Great News Letter

Today is March 2nd, and welcome to The Daily Quote – a podcast designed to kickstart your day in a positive way. I’m your host, Andrew McGivern, and I’m thrilled you are here with me today.

Our audience is growing so if you’ve been sharing the show with your friends – thank you for that!

Let’s jump right into the heart of today’s episode.

Interestingly, March 2nd also marks National Banana Cream Pie Day, a day to celebrate one of the most comforting and, let’s be honest, delicious desserts known to humankind. There’s something inherently cheerful about a day dedicated to pie, isn’t there? It’s as if the universe is giving us a nod, saying, “Yes, it’s perfectly acceptable to have dessert for breakfast today.” And who are we to argue with the universe?

In light of this, our quote of the day is not from a famed author or philosopher, but from the world of comedy, capturing the essence of today’s quote…

Ernestine Ulmer once said…

“Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.”

This quote, while tickling our sweet tooth, also dishes out a dollop of wisdom with a cherry on top.

Now, at first glance, this quote might seem to be advocating for a diet that nutritionists would balk at. But let’s not whisk it away too quickly. What it’s really serving up is a reminder to savor the sweet moments life offers us. It’s a call to prioritize joy and pleasure in our daily lives, a reminder that sometimes, it’s okay to bend the rules for the sake of happiness. After all, if you’re starting your day with banana cream pie, it’s hard to imagine things going downhill from there.

Ernestine Ulmer’s words, lighthearted as they are, encourage us to embrace the present and indulge in the little things that bring us joy. It’s a nudge to not always save the best for last because, in the unpredictable banquet of life, we’re not always guaranteed a second helping. So why wait? In the spirit of National Banana Cream Pie Day, let this quote be your permission slip to treat yourself.

But let’s take this a step further. This quote isn’t just about food; it’s a metaphor for life. It’s about seizing the day, about living in the moment and finding joy in the now. It’s an invitation to make every day a little sweeter, whether through sharing a slice of pie with a friend, diving into a new book, or simply taking a moment to appreciate the beauty around you.

So, on this National Banana Cream Pie Day, let’s take Ernestine Ulmer’s advice to heart. Let’s eat dessert first, both literally and figuratively. Let’s fill our days with moments of joy, laughter, and, yes, delicious pie. Because life is uncertain, and we owe it to ourselves to make every bite count.

Thank you for joining me today on The Daily Quote. Remember, “Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.” Until tomorrow, may your day be filled with all the sweetness and joy you can find… and maybe a slice of banana cream pie, too.
