Wise words from the waterslide

I was standing at the top of the waterslide behind an 8 yr old and his 4 yr old brother waiting for my turn. The 8 yr old instructed his younger brother on how to properly go down the slide and when he did, the older brother turned to me with a knowing sigh and said, “ah, they grow up so quickly,” before doing a belly-flop down the chute.

In the year 2024…

My son asked me the other day, “Will you be alive in 2024?”

Umm… I hope so?

This was his opening question before telling me that WE are going to live on Mars in 2024.  His brother walked up and corrected him, saying that “we” meant humans, and that our family would probably not be up there in 10 years.

I’m glad his brother was there to continue the conversation.  I still haven’t gotten past the question of living until 2024.  Does he know something I don’t?

Welcome to my nightmare

I had a dream last night that I was suddenly 33 years old.  “Wow,” I thought, “Time really flies.  I didn’t realize I was this old already.”

Then I woke up and remembered I’m 38.
