The good always die young.

Post by digitalen » Sat Jun 05, 2021 11:36 pm

I saw the next situation in the comic strip.
A is 80 years old. B died at 94.
A said "The good always die young.
I wonder why A thinks 94 is young.

Because the 80 year-old doesn't feel at all old, so someone only 14 years older is still young,
It's a joke, don't take it seriously.

The older I get, the younger everyone else seems. Years ago, had an 80-some year old friend died, I would have said, "Well, he's old." Now I'd say, "He's so young!"

A few decades ago I used to define middle age as my current age + 15 years.

I have to admit that this is no longer a plausible definition, but I have adapted the formula so that old age is now defined as my current age + 15 years.

That should be good for a while. 😂

It is a joke based on they are both old and know it. My twin aunts , only a few minutes apart, used to jibe the other with "the youngster" or "the oldie".
