People tell me I'm getting older like it's a bad thing. They say it like I was diagnosed with an alien form of rectum cancer that expels diarrhea out of my mouth. According to every kung-fu movie ever, getting older means mastering deadly fighting arts. Are their any fifteen year olds with long, white beards and the ability to kill a group of bandits single handedly while laughing? I'd like to think that this present version of me could kick the ass of me five years ago. I'd also like to think five years from now I'd kick the ass of this current version of me. I'm hopeful. I'll be smarter. I'll be better. Just because my body is getting lazy and quitting on me, doesn't me I have to. Hopefully I'll be just as retarded when I'm 50 or 80. Youth is wasted on quitters.
