Goodbye George Carlin

 

George Carlin

This morning I read the morning news and saw George Carlin has left us.

Oh, naughty word George, how I will miss you and your wonderful humor.

George and I shared this world for many years.

I know he had the concept of aging figured out.

And feeling a gentle sadness at his passing, I share with you what George had to say about Life and getting older:

George Carlin’s Views on Aging

Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we’re kids?

If you’re less than 10 years old, you’re so excited about aging that you think in fractions. ‘How old are you?’ I’m four and a half!’

You’re never thirty-six and a half. You’re four and a half, going on five! That’s the key.

You get into your teens, now they can’t hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.

“How old are you?’ ‘I’m gonna be 16!’ You could be 13, but hey, you’re gonna be 16!

And then the greatest day of your life . . You become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony . YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!

 But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out.

There’s no fun now, you’re Just a sour-dumpling. What’s wrong? What’s changed?

 
You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you’re PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it’s all slipping away.

Before you know it, you REACH 50 and your dreams are gone.

But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn’t think you would!

So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.

You’ve built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it’s a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!

You get into your 80’s and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30 ; you REACH bedtime.

And it doesn’t end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards; ‘I Was JUST 92.’

Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. ‘I’m 100 and a half!’
May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!

George managed to hit 71 years of age. Guess he figured after that it was just a matter of repeating what you have already done.

Gosh, I wish he could tell us about the next stage of Life he has entered! That could really be a humorous moment. I hope you have found Peace, George.

We send you on your way with…..

Sad Smiles. ET
