I should be so lucky.

Here’s a term that I recently learned that’s worth knowing: a micromort. Unless you’re an actuary or have swallowed a dictionary, you probably haven’t come across this term before. I only know it due to spending the last couple of years absorbing myself in the world of insurance, and it’s worth knowing—and not just for potential Scrabble points. We love the saying “one in a million”, but we’re not that great at perceiving and understand risk… even in a global pandemic.
