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.
