just read yesterday's and pretend it's today's

'just read yesterday's and pretend it's today's' - that's what my father used to say to my mother when she was going to buy today's paper not having touched yesterday's. I've taken after my mother in that regard, and have a tottering pile of newspaper backlog. If I lived on my own I'd be one of those old men found crushed under one of his toppled piles of papers, several months after the toppling. 'Just read December's and pretend it's today's.'
