I read your post both simultaneously smiling and frowning. You know, that rare look someone gets when they want to get teary-eyed but put on a smile at the same time.
I made up my mind a long time ago not to think about the future. It's too uncertain and sometimes frightening. It's human nature to wonder: "when am I going to die, how am I going to die, what humiliating and frightening situations will I experiences out there".
But I decided to push those out of my head. I want to absorb all the good things in life while I can. I realize that's MUCH easier said than done. I also realize that your post was probably not intended to be dark and depressing. I saw it more as a touch of humor, in a scary situation. I appreciated it and understand.
I hope you will let us know when those bulbs burn out. Deal?
