The Number Game



Do you realize that the only time, in our lives when we like to be old is, when we’ kids. If you’r less than 10 years old, you’r so excited about aging and fractions. How old are you? I’m four and a half! Four and a half going on five! When you get in the teen numbers, you do big leaps like. …Im gonna be 16!” You could be 13, but hey, you’re gonna be 16!.
Then the greatest day in your life arrives….. you become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony…. YOU BECOME 21! YESSSS!!!!

Then you hit 30. Ooooh, what happened there? Now you sound like milk gone bad. She turned, we have to throw her out. There is no more fun, you’re just a sour-dumpling. What went wrong? What changed? You BECOME 21 but you TURN 30….. then you’re PUSHIN 40. Now REACHING 50 and MAKE it to 60. You’ve built up so much speed that you HIT 70!!!

After that it is a day-by-day thing; you HIT lunch; TURN to 4.30; then REACH bedtime. It does not end there…..You finally MADE it to 90, you start going backward: I was just 92. Then something strange happens….

You GET to 100 years old and you become a little kid again. I am 100 and a half!!!
May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!!!

  1. lmao – this made me laugh so hard (which I needed by the way). My grandmother is 90 and her sister is 95 and they never miss an opportunity to shout their ages and birthdays, WITH the fractions lol just like their 3 and 5.
