This Tuesday, our https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2022/11/01/truthful-tuesday-1st-november-2022/ question is does time fly as you get older.
Yes, it does!!!
When I was a kid, I remember thinking, great I am five and three-quarters, and when I am six: I will be able to have more freedom. Now at the ripe old age of late fifties, I stick to my age. There are no quarters, halves, thirds, or anything remotely part of an age.
It scares me, that in a few years’ time I will be sixty. I mean I will be able to collect one of my pensions, and perhaps even work part time instead. Not that I would love having more time to myself, but that means I am of the older generation.
It doesn’t help working in a school and thinking about the next school holidays when you start the term. Like there are seven weeks to Christmas. I know that, and it scares me, I know that.
I think a lot of it is you were looking forward to getting older, so it went slower. Now I’m nervous of getting older, and time speeds up to a point where you think, where did that year go? 2023 seems so futuristic, like I am part of a sci fi movie.
I remember watching back to the future – hover boards, flat screen TV’s, there is nothing else to say.
