“When your legs don’t work like they used to before…”
One of the new Bruno Mars songs – I’ll still be loving you until we’re 70.
What do you think about that?
I was offended. What happens after 70?
You are too decrepit to do anything anymore?
What happens for the next 20 years?
I know, he’s young, and he thinks 70 is really old! Heck, when I was growing up we thought 30 was old.
But I’m 11 years away, and that time flies the older we get, doesn’t it? You have a whole different perspective, don’t you?
I can’t picture myself with legs that don’t work and not being able to do anything 11 short years from now. I’m next in line for Alzheimer’s, so my memory may be fading – or not. I hope not.
Like many people – I work hard to stay fit and healthy so I won’t be huddled in my rocking chair in my 70’s.
I’m sure it will be the hottest wedding song this year, and for years to come. OK, the premise of the song is sweet – I’ll love you until we’re old and gray and can’t walk anymore. But geez! Hopefully that won’t be when we’re 70!
