Memory Guru’s Views on aging
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
four and a half!' You're never
thirty-six and a half. You're four and a half, going on five! That's the
You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back. You jump to the
next number, or even a few ahead.
'How old are you?' 'I'm gonna be 16!' You could be 13, but hey, you're
gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life ! You become21.
Even the words sound like a ceremony. YOU
BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!
But then you turn 30.
Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED;
we had to throw him out. There's no fun now, you're Just a
sour-dumpling.. What's wrong? What's changed?
You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you'rePUSHING 40.
Whoa! Put on the brakes, it's all slipping away. Before you know it,
you REACH 50
and your dreams are gone.
But! wait!! ! You MAKE it to 60. You
didn't think you would!
So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH50 and MAKE IT to 60.
You've built up so much speed that you HIT 70!
After that it's a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!
You get into ! your 80's
and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you
REACH bedtime. And it doesn't end there. Into the 90s, 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 100 and a half!'
May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!
