New Wrinkles

You wake up one day and realize you’re ten years older than you were the previous night. Beyond the initial shock, how does this development change your life plans?

Well if I woke up tomorrow and found out that I had suddenly turned 50 – retirement would be up in a few years! The end would come much faster. I’d be 50. Fucking 50. An age which it felt like just a few years ago was centuries away. That’s how devastating it would be for me.

I like life and I like doing whatever it is that I feel like doing on any free day. I would feel that at 50, this dude would be inclined to stay at home much more and drinking coffee and liquor every Saturday and Sunday evening and order in more than going out. I dunno, but being a bachelor is lonely most of the time and hence, going out and seeing happy couples and families is taxing for you.

I would also probably look around and see what changes I could make to my life and make it more comfortable and healthier would also be in the works. I’d probably also save a lot more. I don’t think much else would change.
