Age is a funny thing

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 aging that you think in fractions.

"How old are you?"

"I`m 4 and half."

You`re never 36 and a half, but you`re 4 and a half going on 5! That`s the key. 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. And then the greatest day of your life happens: you become 21. Even the words sounds like a ceremony — You BECOME 21. YES!!!!

But then you turn 30. Ooohhh, what happened here?? Makes you sound like bad milk. He TURNED. We had to throw him out.

There`s no fun now. What`s wrong?? What changed???

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you`re PUSHING 40...stay over there, it`s all slipping away...

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, you`re PUSHING 40, you REACH 50...my dreams are gone...

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, you`re PUSHING 40, you REACH 50 and then you MAKE IT to 60...Whew! I didn`t think I`d make it.

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, You`re PUSHING 40, you REACH 50, you MAKE IT to 60, and 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 80s, you HIT lunch. I mean 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!!

Yep - Age is a funny thing.
