Reporting Ages


	Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old
	is when we're kids?  If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited 
	about aging that you think in fractions.  How old are you?.... "I'm four 
	and a half" ....You're never 36 and a half....you're four and a half going 
	on five!

	That's the key.  You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back.  
	You jump to the next number.  How old are you?  "I'm gonna be 16."  You
	could be 12, but you're gonna be 16.

	And then the greatest day of your life happens....you become 21.  Even
	the words sound like a ceremony....you BECOME 21...YES!!!

	But then you turn 30....ooohhh what happened there?  Makes you sound like 
	bad milk....He TURNED, we had to throw him out.  There's no fun now.

	What's wrong??  What changed??  You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you're
	PUSHING 40.....stay over there, it's all slipping away........

	You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, you're PUSHING 40, you REACH 50.....and your
	dreams are gone.

	Then you MAKE IT to 60.....you didn't think you'd make it!!!!

	So you BECOME 21, you TURN 30, you're PUSHING 40, you REACH 50, you MAKE
	IT to 60......then you build up so much speed you HIT 70!

	After that, it's a day by day thing.  After that, you HIT Wednesday....
	You get into your 80's, you HIT lunch.  You TURN 4:30, my grandmother 
	won't even buy green bananas....it's an investment you know, and maybe a 
	bad one.

	And it doesn't end there....into the 90's you start going backwards....
	I was JUST 92...

	Then a strange thing happens.  If you make it over 100, you become a
	little kid again.... "I'm 100 and a half!!!!"
