Oh, that is soon

I was on the elevator just now with an old lady and an ever older man.

They were chit chatting and the lady asked the man how he was doing.

“I’m great. Have a birthday soon!”

“Really? When?”

“The 21st.”

“Of June?”


Reader, this is when the lady and I shared a glance, and the same thought. That thought being, “that’s not soon.” However, what the man said next changed both of our minds:

“I’m going to be 100.”

It was clear we both agreed that was soon. And good job to that guy! He did follow that up by saying he didn’t have any advice for anyone. Then I got off the elevator.
