    Life is unsure; always eat your dessert first.

    Hi teachers,

    1) Life is unsure; always eat your dessert first.


    Is there any punctuation mistake?


    Many thanks in advance.

    It's hard to tell because it doesn't make any sense. What is life unsure about?

    Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.

    Life is so unpredictable that the world may end before you finish dinner. It would be a shame if you ate your vegetables, but didn't have time for chocolate cake. So eat dessert first. If the world ends, at least you got your cake.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    That's good advice! And to think I've been forcing myself to eat the potatoes first all my life! Well, that's over. I'm an adult now for crying out loud.
