“A man growing old becomes a child again” – Sophocles. Can you really imagine what you will look like when you are old, both your physical look and the way you think? I think I will be a better dad. I will try to explain instead of being mad to my children. I will try to make my children happy. I will make my children successful. I think I will have deep wrinkles. I will be wiser than my youth. My young form will be wilder than my old form. I will erase all of my regrets from the past and tell my children so they won’t make the same mistake like I did. Maybe I will get a lot of disease that will make my life harder. I will become selfless. That’s how I imagine myself when I get old. I think my fashion sense will be worse than now. I don’t want to be an obsolete old man. I think no one wants to be. I will never leave my family. I think of myself to be a good father, maybe I think I will get a mild stroke. I don’t know why I think that way, it’s just a strong feeling. I want a wife who trusts me, who loves me just the way I am. I don’t want to be a failed old man.
“A young man is a theory, an old man is a fart” – E. W. Howe.
