If this is what I have to look forward to, COUNT ME OUT!
”You don’t stop doing things because you get old. You get old because you stop doing things.” –Rosamunde Pilcher
Ever notice that a lot of old people only talk about their health problems? This is another reason I have Peter Pan syndrome. When I am 80, I will still be rocking out and hopefully taking my pants off in inappropriate places. Being old and wrinkly will be even better for the sake of comedy. Betty White is kind of my hero. And she got to make out with Bradley Cooper, so it ain’t all bad.
Don’t get me wrong, I still want to do some adult things. I know 80 year olds who still surf and know how to use the internets, and I know people the same age who still don’t have call waiting or know how to use an answering machine (or didn’t in the 1990s) and wouldn’t know what to do with a computer or iPhone.
This is why I will never get old. Sitting around watching Wheel of Fortune talking about my last doctor visit and bowel movements is my idea of hell.
When Im old, hopefully I’ll be crazier than I am now (that’s part of the fun of getting old, right?), surf, travel, play Wii (or whatever the hip thing is), learn a new language, start some weird social club, throw stuff off the bridge.
I plan on being a teenage hood rat forever.
