I Have Two Permanent Ages
Scott Adams asks:
I have two permanent ages. I'm part 10 and part 60. Maybe I should have called this blog “The Cranky Old Pre-Adolescent.”
Here’s a fun question to ask people after a few drinks: What’s your permanent age?
I’ve observed that everyone has a permanent age that appears to be set at birth. For example, I’ve always been 42-years old. I was ill-suited for being a little kid, and didn’t enjoy most kid activities. By first grade I knew I wanted to be an adult, with an established career, car, house and a decent tennis game. I didn’t care for my awkward and unsettled twenties. And I’m not looking forward to the rocking chair. If I could be one age forever, it would be 42.
Now get off my lawn! I have to get back to my science-fiction magazines.
Addendum: It looks like Nerdstar also has two permanent ages.
