I was on a ferry boat (The Princess Margeurite) going from Seattle to Victoria BC for a school field trip. I remember buying those liquor-filled chocolates and some lilac perfume in the gift shop and thinking it was quite sophisticated.
Well, it was.
My mother always told me to finish what I started, but she had no idea of some of the people I'd be dealing with.
Assuming that the 70 year old option doesn't include a decrepit body, I'd go for that. As long as I am healthy enough to be able to walk freely without problems, maybe go skiing, I'd be happiest as old as possible.
I look forward to being old and being that mature and developed. I'd like to think I would even become "wise." Of course, if the trade off here is to spend the next 500 years with a walker and an oxygen mask, I'll pass on the advanced age.
Something kind of interesting just occured to me though... If you were to consider what was the best year of your life, logically wouldn't it follow that that would be the age you would want to be locked in to? For me, no, because although the best year I ever had (so far) was a few back, I wouldn't trade the mature knowledge I have experienced since then to be at that "prime" age.
But there is something to be said for being able to get it up time after time after time all night long.......
Old age and wisdom shall always overcome youthfulness and vigor (or something like that.)
The Law of Fives is never wrong.
Hmm..10 would be fun. I was a happy little 10 yearold, but I'd hate to have to depend on ppl forever. You'd always have to have an adult pose as a parent, like Claudia did in Interview with the Vampire and that little boy in Mermaid Scar. They didn't become very nice ppl in the end.
It'd be fun to be 70 as long as I was healthy enough to do physical activities w/ no problem. Being old is a fearful and depressing time for most ppl because they know they can easily die any second, but if I know I'll live forever no matter what that wouldn't be an issue. That way I could be mature as possible, but not have to deal with any of the negative side affects of old age except maybe some wrinkles. Even then, when you look old, ppl stop exspecting you to look good and just dont question your appearence. They respect anything you do just because you're old. It'd be great. I'd be the crazy granny speeding down the highway on the motorcycle, taking swigs of vodka. Good times.
