I came across the fulminations of an English purist about the usage that something, or someone, faced an uncertain future!
He pointed out that the future can never be certain or it wouldn't be the future. I forget the other things he railed against, but that one stuck in my mind because it could be the story of my life. Every time my future seems settled, some unplanned incident sets me off on a new course, chasing some unforeseen opportunity.
I wouldn't have it any other way. Would you?
