    My brain doesn't agree and I am often surprised by the old guy that greets me. Fortunately my wife sees the more youthful me. Great poem.

    When I get old the one thing I'll embrace is baldness (my hair's already thinning and I'm not even twenty yet). Well written limerick! I find it interesting how back then getting gray hairs was a sign of wisdom and experience... nowadays it's avoided at all costs and people dye it as soon as possible *shrugs*...

    Hey this is funny. Gotta laugh about life. It's not bad getting old. A lot of people never made it. It also brings an unusual and refined wisdom that no one will listen to.
