Going to Party Like It's 2028
The prompt is: "How do you see yourself in ten years?"
Well, older. When you're my age, ten years isn't all that much.
I'm 57 years old now, mostly retired, and I write. When I'm 67, I don't know. I'll probably still be writing. I'll probably have more health problems (or the ones I have now will be worse). I'm hoping I'll still be alive. I might take my self-driving car to the Senior Center and have coffee every morning (my father does that now, well, except for the self-driving car part).
I'm really going to hate self-driving cars. Someone once said, "The speed limit will likely go up with self-driving cars." I said, "What good is a faster speed limit if I can't drive it?"
I probably will have even less hair than I have now, and probably none of it will be red anymore.
I will be fully eligible for Social Security. If that's still a thing.
Probably not a whole lot more will change. I will probably have broken down by then and bought a tablet computer. Or a eyePhone (that's not a typo).
Where do you see yourself in ten years? Comment below.
