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 ten years old, you're so excited about
that you think in fractions:
"I'm four and a half."
You get into your teens; now they can't hold you back! You
the next number:
"I'm gonna be 16."
You could be 12, but you're gonna be 16. Eventually.
Then the great day of your life; you become 21.
Even the words sound like a ceremony.
You BECOME 21....Yes!!!!!
Then you turn 30.
What happened there?
Makes you sound like bad milk. He TURNED; we had to throw him out.
You BECOME 21; you TURN 30.
Then you're PUSHING 40....ohhhh, stay over there!
You REACH 50.
You BECOME 21; you TURN 30; You're PUSHING 40; you REACH 50; then you
MAKE IT to 60.
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 80's; you HIT lunch, you HIT
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 100 and a half."
To the world, you may just be somebody...but to somebody, you may be the world.
