“Life is like a jar of jalapeños; What you do today may burn your ass tomorrow”

"Life is like a jar of jalapeños; What you do today may burn you ass tomorrow” is a food proverb, giving a Texas spin to the famous film line in Forrest Gump (1994).

[Mrs. Gump, played by Sally Field, speaking:]
Life is like a box of chocolates, Forrest. You never know what you’re goin’ to get.
Forrest Gump (1994). Screenplay by Eric Roth.
