I hope

I was chatting with an older colleague today about her 89-year-old mother. Annie, my co-worker, is a bit worried about her, since she's apparently still off gallivanting about the world, having fun.

After expressing her fear that her mom might fall and hurt herself, Annie visibly shook herself and said, "Well, my mom is just really cool and AWESOME. So nothing will get her down!"

All I could think is that I hope someday MY girls will still say things like that about me. :)

Good on those 80-somethings. I used to think like that and then... sumthin' happened.

Christina LMT said...

Wai, that's quite an offer! Thank you, Sir!

Buck, you live in an RV! That's like the ultimate adventure, you can pick up stakes and leave anytime you want. That's just cool.

Yep, y'all will make it, us guys will be confined to the old folks home...sigh...

Christina LMT said...

Farmmom, that's fantastic! I want to go skydiving, but sooner than my 80th...

Old NFO, don't be so damn pessimistic, who says anything about old folks' home?! Why wouldn't you be out there, partying it up?

Be good to your kids, darlin'. THEY will choose your nursing home.

Christina LMT said...

Edward, I'm going out in a blaze of glory...no nursing home for me!

Forgive my French, but fuck that nonsense.
I've lived far too hard and had way too much fun to ever make it that far.
Come to think of it, even those clowns on Jackass are way to soft on themselves. Pussies...
