Everyone Wants to be Old

"Everything in this store is older than you, right mama?"


"And that's why everything's so expensive? Because everyone wants to be old?"

I don't know if that's true. A lot of people want to be young.


Because when you're young you can jump higher and run faster and you believe in all kinds of magical things. Because the older we get, the closer we typically are to death and that's a really scary thing for most people.

"Because people will forget what we look like when we die?"

Yes. I'm sure that's part of it.



"Before you and daddy die, will you leave me some pictures so I can remember your faces?"


"I like this couch. It's my favorite color."

Mine too.
