Seniors -- Who Us? Just a Mild Crisis...
Remember when you really, really, really wanted to be a "Senior?"
That, of course, was when you were a Sophomore.
Then after you graduated, well, you never thought about being called a "Senior" again
until one heniously traumatic day.
The day it hit you that during the last twenty years
while you were working and raising kids and doing good deeds in the world, gravity had
been having its evil way with you.
All at once, owie. Who the
heck is that in your mirror?
Getting older really sucks, until you adjust to it. And you either do, or you have a
pretty miserable time of it. That adjustment period is what we fondly term "middle-age
crisis." Which can be diagnosed by incidents such as waking up in the middle of the night
laughing and writing down your thoughts.
Brilliant thoughts such as: "Is There a Universal
Return Policy?" and "I'd like to return this birthday suit and get another model. One
that won't wear out so soon, get wrinkled, gray, or waddle."
Then you laugh hysterically and fall back asleep. The next morning you read it and burst into tears. Now that's a
But, I digress.
Bottom line. Who are "Seniors" anyhow?
It's all relative. If you're a teenager, a "Senior" is anyone over 29. When you're thirty-something, well, it moves up considerably.
As you slip into your forties, and people address you as "ma'am" and "sir" - you pretty
much know you're slicking on down the road to "Senior" land.
When you collide with your fifties, "Seniors" suddenly transition into those folks who are at least 65.
Then in your sixties, you might admit being "older and wiser" but definitely nowhere near that
"Elder" stuff they keep talking about.
Everything, my dears, if relative.And if you
don't understand that theory - here is a direct quote from Albert Einstein that explains it:
"When you sit with a nice girl for two hours, you think it's only a minute. But when you
sit on a hot stove for a minute, you think it's two hours. That's relativity."
So what I started out to do was apologize for the fact that we titled this section - the
"Senior" section. So please accept our abject apologies - I hate the term "Senior" as
much as any other self-respecting human who is in total denial.
Anyhow, good luck checking out the links below, all you nifty chicks and dudes.
