Kendall, your post really moved me.

I lost a dear, young friend to a horrible car crash this year. He died instantly. We were in touch via email a week or so before. We were meaning to get together in New York so he could show off his new gourmet cooking skills. We never did.

NEVER take it for granted that you will live forever, or even to be a ripe old age.

Things change on a dime and we often don't get that last chance to say I love you, to watch the sunset, to read (or write) that poem, or to eat that ice cream...

Of course overindulging is unhealthy. But I do NOT think that is what Kendall was saying. he is a pretty health-minded guy from what I know of him. I think it was unfair to attack that aspect of his post.
