Interesting Article (Part I)

Here's an interesting article that I picked up from my church's bulletin. It is a humourous and
delightful article by George Carlin...


"Do you realise 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 ageing 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 to five! That's the key. 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 going to be 16!'

You could be 13, but hey, you're gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life: you

become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony. YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS! But then you
turn 30. Oooooh, what happened there? Makes you sound like a 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're PUSHING 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, REACH 50 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 bedtime. 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!'

May you make it to a healthy 100 and a half !!
