Why Thinking Young is Not For the Old
May 27, 2011 § 1 Comment
It doesn’t pay to think young.
Young: Racking up the credit card charges as if there’s no tomorrow.
Old: Tomorrow has arrived. Every penny counts.
Young: Grease and salt rule … Hamburgers and French fries for all!
Old: Cholesterol counts and doctors’ frowns curb the craving.
Young: Falling in love, dreaming, heartbreaks and tears.
Old: Been there, done that. Love the old guy I’m with.
Young: The Lots-of-Time-For-That Syndrome.
Old: Each day is precious.
Young: Staying out late and dreading that morning alarm.
Old: Early to bed, and who needs an alarm?
Young: What’s on the outside counts.
Old: Character lines are earned from the inside out and proudly displayed.
Young: Looking young is a prime obsession.
Old: Peering out of wrinkled birthday suits with young eyes.
