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
aging that you think in fractions. "How old are you?"
"I'm four and a half going on 5."
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. Eventually.
Then the great day of your life; you become 21. Even the words
sound like a ceremony. You BECOME 21
Then you turn 30. What happened there? Makes you sound like bad
milk. He TURNED; we had to throw him out. What's wrong? What
You BECOME 21; you TURN 30; Your PUSHING 40
.stay over there.
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 4:30. My Grandmother won't
even buy green bananas. "Well, it's an investment, you know,
and maybe a bad one."
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."
Well my friends, REMEMBER GROWING OLD IS ONLY MIND OVER MATTER;
IF YOU DON'T MIND---IT DON'T MATTER!
