  • Mood:

fatigue

it is not yet 7 and I am ready to go to bed. I could, I suppose, crawl up there with the latest volume of The Complete Peanuts. apparently the last one of this series will be printed in 2016. I guess that is only 11 years away but it seems like such a frightening number.

come to think of it I've never really considered just how far into the 21st century I might live. I suppose the goal is 2062, for 100 years, but I'd be happy to hit 80 in 2042. the thing that frightens me really is that that is some time from now and there are all sorts of appalling and horrid things that could happen between now and then. of course there are good things too but for instance whatever mess the current administration makes is one whose consequences I am still going to have to deal with.

well, unless jesus really does come back. in which case, see you in hell or limbo or purgatory or wherever.

but if I were to intuit that the crappy things I've already had to live through were going to happen to me again in the next forty years, I might give some thought to an early exit. hopefully the worst of the trauma is over.

of course by the time I'm 80 I'll be going to bed at 3 in the afternoon.
