If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
Lord, I’d be halfway through my life. My first thought would be that I would try to arse around less. But with the exception of days like today where all I want to do is Internet and watch TV, I really pack my days in.
If I only had my forty years, I would tell people how I feel with less hesitation. I would drink and eat less, hug more. I would have started volunteering long before I started. I wouldn’t encourage conflict, but walk away and understand that most people don’t hold malice in their hearts. I wouldn’t waste time stressing about things I have no control over. I would avoid reality TV.
In any case, it takes 42 years to really achieve everything in life, or so the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy would have me believe.
