I really had a flash moment of feeling old this morning.
I was filling up a Sunday through Saturday pill container. Isn’t that what old people do?
But I was filling it up with vitamins and supplements, not prescriptions. Those things may eventually enter my life, but I’m fighting against them. It’s expensive, though to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I need to buy stock in GNC.
Then it occurred to me that our bodies do demand a price from us. Since the Fall of Man our bodies begin a process of dying from the moment we are born. If we do nothing to care for them, like cars, they fall apart faster and require medicines, surgeries and frequent doctor visits. All very expensive.
Either way, you pay.
I have to admit that some old people ideas aren’t bad. The daily pill box is actually very efficient.
