10/18/14 Weekend Grif.Net – I Should Live So Long

Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is
when we’re kids? If you’re less than 10 years old, you’re so excited about
aging that you think in fractions.

“How old are you?”
“I’m 4 and half.”

You’re never 36 and a half, but you’re 4 and a half going on 5! That’s the
key. You get into your teens, now they can’t hold you back. You jump to the
next number.

“How old are you?”
“I’m gonna be 16.”

You could be 12, but you’re gonna be 16. And then the greatest day of your
life happens: you become 21. Even the words sounds like a ceremony – you
BECOME 21.

But then you turn 30. Ooohhh, what happened here?? My, you sound like bad
milk. He TURNED?!…..What changed???

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, you’re PUSHING 40, you REACH 50..then you MAKE
IT to 60…Whew…I didn’t think I’d make it…

MAKE IT to 60, and by then you’ve built up so much speed, you HIT 70! After
that, it’s a day by day thing. You HIT Wednesday, you get into your 80s, you
HIT lunch. And it doesn’t end there. Into the 90’s, you start going
backwards: I was JUST 92.

Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little
kid again: I’m 101 and a half!

I should live so long.
