In My Next Life!

I want to live my next life backwards! You start out dead and get
that out of the way right off the bat. Then, you wake up in a nursing
home feeling better every day. When you are kicked out of the home for
being too healthy, you spend several years enjoying your retirement
and collecting benefit checks. When you start work, you get a gold
watch on your first day. You work 40 years or so, getting younger
every day until pretty soon you're too young to work. So then, you go
to high school: play sports, date, drink, and party. As you get even
younger, you become a kid again. You go to elementary school, play,
and have no responsibilities. In a few years, you become a baby and
everyone runs themselves ragged keeping you happy. You spend your last
9 months floating peacefully in luxury, spa-like conditions: central
heating, room service on tap. Until finally...You finish off as an

I rest my case.

Think about it!!!    
Hope you all have a wonderful day!

You are simply a delight, mon amie! I read it twice smiling both times. Sadly, I do not think that we are going to get a gold watch going either direction through life. Enjoy the rest of this week, Sylvia!

I'd never thought of it like that, quite an interesting concept. Maybe we would be frustrated at our lack of wisdom and understanding as we grew younger and in many cases, less helpful and able......

that's a bit like a 'curious case...'

but yea...pretty cool...esp a great watch on the first day of work...u get to young to work...n spa like conditions!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
