“You’re pretty much ancient already”

A random memory came up as I was just reading a friend’s Facebook status and, before I forget it again, I thought I’d post my comment here also.

Years ago – when I used to do a lot of Children’s voluntary work – a child came up to me a few days before my 20th birthday. He was a lovely kid and over the years we had gotten to know each other well.

He was saying to me: “Oh, you’re 20 soon, happy birthday. But, you know, it’s not much longer til you’re 30 and then you’re basically 40 already. Face it, your life is pretty much over and you’re pretty much ancient already.”

The kid said it all like it was a fact and it’s stuck with me since.

Brilliant.
