Think About This: Them as ha’ never had a cushion don’t miss it.

Jan 5, 2011 by

Today’s thing to thing about is quite simple and straight forward: You don’t miss what you’ve never had.  

It was said long ago by George Elliot.  He more poignantly stated it as: Them as ha’ never had a cushion don’t miss it. For some reason, I’ve always thought it was “He who hath never had a cushion doesn’t miss it,” and for some reason I’ve been going about since my high school days thinking it was Benjamin Franklin who had copied it, I mean, adapted it.

In the 1990s song I Wish by a band called, “King Missile,”  (Their best known song wasDetachable Penis.“)  in a random series of lyrics that mostly make no sense at all, the singer laments that he wishes he could “Return to the life I never knew.”

But that’s the paradox of it all, and I think that was mainly the point of the song, you can’t long for something you don’t know exists.  Or can you?
