Another Song About Preparing For The Worst: Worse Comes To Worst By Billy Joel

 


Nobody's talking about what they intend to do when that bomb went off two weeks ago.  Some are just trying to get by while others are already making their plans or considering their options.  Until we find what the verdict is, I guess anything can happen.  We hoped for the best but now we have to prepare for the worst.  That's why for this post, Billy Joel's song "Worse Comes To Worst" is a good choice for this post.

It's a wicked game of Pascual's Wager where you have try to make the best and safest choice possible.  It's a dark reminder that you have to be prepared for anything.  That's the reason why you need a plan B because you don't what to expect and life doesn't always go the way you want it.  We are now learning it the hard way.  We didn't expect it to happen and now we are scrambling to salvage what we can.

Right now it's a matter of wait and see.  Most of us already have our cards prepared and we are now waiting for the dealer to show his hand.  The waiting is tough and a lot is riding on this gamble.  Whatever happens will happen.  Just be prepared.  That's all you can do when worse comes to worse.
