Sometimes when you are young, you want to be older. Most people I know get old before they get old. On the other hand, I have seen 80 year olds who were younger–way younger–than some 16 year olds. So, it seems that there are at least two kinds of “old.” One, where you have enough experience that you can take things in stride. That kind of attitude requires adjustment–like surfing on a board. The other kind of “old” is an attitude where everything needs to fit into a world of that person’s own making and when it doesn’t… Watchout! It’s an attitude of attitrude.
