Teenage Wishes Part 2

Contest closes June 6th. Enter today...

I used to have a MySpace account. I started my blog there. But after I had a few too many technical difficulties, I moved the blog here. I have since closed the MySpace account. I hate to lose all of my blogs from that time, so from time to time I repost them here.

My last repost entry was part 1 of this multi-part series. Here is part 2, originally posted on February 22, 2007.  

As promised yesterday, I'm back with more of the questionnaire: "The Wishes You'd Like to Come True".  Again, I'm transcribing, not editing.  First up today:
"The age I wish I were, and why."
Some responses:

"17.  You not a adult yet but you still get to have fun and not have to be charge as an adult."

"8.  No responsibilitys and I would be able to skateboard all day."

"The age I am now.  Because I want to live my life to the fullest."

"13.  Because, that's before I had my kid and the age I had the most fun in."

"21.  Old enough to vote and a little bit to young to marry."
And one more question: "The way in which I'd like to die and at what age, and why."
Some responses:

"I would like to die at the age of 132 of natural causes, because I want to live as long as I can and be as healthy as I can."

"I would not like to die, because of the fear of what is next."

"Sniped in the head at age 80, because it's cool."

"50, and in my sleep.  Cuz I want to live at least in age to where I want to see my grandkids."

"Sleeping and at age 55.  That way I don't feel pain and at that age because I don't want to grow to be really old."

You know, I tell them that they have no perspective on what "old" really is.  They don't believe me.  Someday they will.

  1. That is so true! When I was young, 50 seemed old. Each year I age, the later years look younger and younger.

    50 and grandkids? What's the rush?


I appreciate your comments.

I respond to comments* via email, unless your profile email is not enabled. Then, I'll reply in the comment thread. Eventually. Probably.

*Exception: I do not respond to "what if?" comments, but I do read them all. Those questions are open to your interpretation, and I don't wish to limit your imagination by what I thought the question was supposed to be.
