A Pessimist's View of the Cycles of Life
OK, this is a little tongue-in-cheek, but it just kinda popped into my head. I call it, "A Pessimist's View of the Cycles of Life."
Infancy: You are totally dependent upon others and do not understand the concept of problems.
Childhood: You enjoy life and are without problems.
Youth: You become aware that others have problems, but they do not affect you.
Adolescence: You cause problems for others.
Early adulthood: You cause problems for yourself.
Middle age: You must deal with your problems and everyone else's problems as well, including those that others have created for you.
Old age: You must deal with your problems constantly and no longer have time to worry about anyone else's problems.
Extreme old age: You no longer deal with your problems; you have become someone else's problem.
Well, that's my feeble attempt at humor for the day.
