2066

In the year 2066 I will be as old as my grandfather is today. I made this realization talking to my little sister last night. We were talking about retirement saving plans and whatnot and I was pulling some hypothetical year out of my butt that is a long time from now. I thought of 2040. Then I thought about it some more and my grandfather is 93. I'll be 33 this year, so 2006 plus 60 is 2066. It blows my mind because 2066 seems like some science fictional time in the future. Todd, Taggart and I chatted about it this afternoon. The chat is on the work computer so I can't cite it right now, but at some point I said that there better be space travel and moon resorts by then.

i think i had a thought like this when i was like 9 or so
it occured to me that on the year 2000 i would be 30
i thought that was amazing at the time
i thought there would be hovercrafts and people would wear silver
now that it's come and gone
it wasn't so amazing
but i wouldn't change it for anything
