Daily Prompt: Later

Everyone is lazy about something or another. We put things off for another time. Later is when we choose to deal with something important like bill paying or taxes or life choices. I say I will take care of that later but you know later comes when you least expect it and that thing you said you would take care of doesn’t get taken care of. Later is a future point in time but it’s also when we forget because other things have come along to distract us.

What is truly sad is when we say we will see someone later but later comes and goes or later never comes.

Do things now, see people now. Later isn’t always guaranteed.
