About 35 years ago I met a guy whom I thought was a few years older than I was. Today I found out that I'm 3-1/2 years older than he is. That means I was older than him 35 years ago.
Lately I've realized that lots of people I thought were older than me are really younger than me.
As time passes, there are fewer and fewer people older than me.
However, as I grow older I still refuse to grow "up."
Like Tom Lehrer I plan to pass from adolescence to senility without passing through maturity.
Like Peter Pan I don't want to wear a tie.
