Found this on another forum and thought you older guys would appreciate it.
In my next life I want to live my life backwards.
I'll start out dead and get that out of the way.
Then I'll wake up in an old people's home feeling better every day, soon to be kicked out for being too healthy.
I'll go collect my pension and then start work, getting a gold watch and a party on my first day.
After working for 40 years, I'll be young enough to enjoy my retirement, so I'll party, drink alcohol, and be generally promiscuous until I'm ready for high school.
Then go to elementary school, become a kid, and just play with no responsibilities until I become a baby and one day am born.
Then I'll spend my last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day, and then Voila!
I'll finish off as an org@#$m!
I know that someone can turn this into a Model T story!
I think it's time for winter to be over.......
Bonus points Fred for actually being one of the few people on here who actually know how to spell Voila, as opposed to the rest of the crowd who (hilariously) think it's wa-la .....
Think of Mork from Ork! Na-nu Na-nu!
Kinda sounds like the Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
Original short story by F.Scott Fitzgerald is better than the movie.
Actually, Garnet, it's "voilą," but I agree with you in principle....
I think "Viola" is funnier, though.
What's a violin got to do with the story?
