So Old

A friend of mine mentioned on Facebook recently that in 18 years she and her husband would be so old.  She is about 20 years younger than I am.  

Yep, if you live long enough you will get old.  And then you will live a bit longer.  If I am so lucky, 18 years from now I will be wondering how I lived so long, and how much more fun can I have before it ends.    

Age changes you.  Your body changes.  I have picked up a few scars over the years, but I am still able to do a lot.  Maybe not everything I have ever done, but a lot.  I move a little slower, but I see and hear things I didn't when I was younger and faster. Your mind will change.  There is a wisdom that comes with age.  Been there, done that, worn out the T-shirt and remember the lessons learned.  I have a better idea of what I enjoy, and what I don't.  I am getting better at saying no.  If I live long enough, I may learn to only say yes to things I enjoy.  

Enjoy old age, it is a pleasure denied to many.  


  1. You are so right. My sister only lived to the age of 29. And although i sometimes look in the mirror and wonder "Who the hell is that?" I'm grateful to have survived long enough to see myself evolve.

  2. who's with me on making it to 100? I have 36 more years to kick ass!

    1. Since you put it that way, I'm game! I hope Balder Half is up for changing adult diapers!

  3. "worn out the T-shirt" - brilliant.

  4. I'm with you, Anne Marie! Only 32 more years for me. And when those idiot journos ask me my secret for long life, I'll tell 'em lots of sex!
