The Final Countdown

Grow old gracefully and give up those things that only the youths should be doing. As Lenny Bruce, the man himself, said “There’s nothing sadder than an aging hipster.” You can get all the surgeries and all that to look young, but that’s all you’re doing is looking young. Your clock is ticking, ticking down to the final countdown. You can’t buy your way out of a meeting with the Grim Reaper. It might take place in the street with you face down; helpless and in the company of strange strangers; god forbid it happens in the office in front of your co-workers that you’ve shared years of fake camaraderie with. If you’re lucky, it happens at home…quietly, peacefully.
