I hope I die before I get old
I saw an old man this morning, frail and bent with age, struggling with every step he had to take and shuddered at the thought of being in his place. How long before I get there? 30 years? 40? Sometimes I think that youth is wasted on the young - most of us are stuck with 9-11 jobs that leave little time for anything else. And we seem to forget that we are wasting away our best years in our office cubicles. By 'best' I mean 'physically most able'. The mind may stay young, but the body wont! So wake up folks, get out of your offices at least once in a while to do things that you can do only when you are young. Youth wont last forever. Carpe diem, baby!
